Angels do wear red!

When I was a child, in school, we were occasionally given copies of drawings to color in. Close to Christmas we were all handed drawings of angels and told to color them in. I sat happily coloring with my crayons, and made her dress red. Everyone handed their angels back to teacher. She hung them all up on the wall in a row. Except mine.
She looked at me crossly and said mine was not being hung up, because "Angels don't wear red!"Hmm, I wonder if Botticelli's teacher ever told him about angels not wearing red?

If I had a penny for every time I was criticized by an art teacher for my choice in color and subject matter.... :) No matter Salix - I just ADORE your red-clad angel!

Your art teacher had obviously only seen a few angels. Amazing that she was so certain though. Have a look at http://www.jackiemorris.co.uk/newwork.htm At the bottom of the page there is an angel with a hare. You may like her dress!
Love the afghan hound and more besides.
Ps Sometimes the cats et me steal their blog to comment.
