I like angels -- in a BIG way!!

Well, this is certainly not my first time posting one of my angels.  But this one is a little bit bigger than the others, as a matter of fact, it's 9' tall!  Why 9'?  Well, taller than that would just be silly.

My inspiration was a set of saloon style louvered doors -- they reminded me of a pair of wings!  So I found an 8' 4x4 in my stash.  The head? -- the back side of a Chinese checkers board.  The halo is the metal ring from a barrel.  And the rest is some doodads to create a bit of detail.  Up close, she's a little scary!  But from a safe distance she looks kind of cool!  She's leaning against my house until she's finds her "forever" home.

Cool project!
