“Alegba’s angel”

My original graphite pencil and oil drawing. A seraph holds a candle in honor of Papa Alegba. Copyright c. 2011


         Papa Alegba is the lwa that walks with me, and because of him I have a closer connection to god and the spirit world. He is my rock and my confidant. I used prismacolor woodless graphite pencil and oil colors for the candle light. The 6 winged angel holds a lit candle for Papa and his symbol is held up by two doves upon a scroll in the background. This drawing I dedicate to Papa Legba and honor be to him!

About ErzulieRedEyesArtandSpirit

I love art, I enjoy oil painting and drawing anything I wish. Vodou is my faith and I enjoy creating artistic images of the lwa and spiritual subjects. I also paint and draw other subjects when I'm inspired! When i'm not painting and drawing I enjoy dancing, and spending time with my family. My favorite medium is Oil but I also love to work with graphite pencil, pastels, pen and ink.
