I really don't know whether I do or not. I love the idea of having a guardian angel, and I often thought that one was watching over me in particular moments. As a child I loved the idea of little fat angels with long wavy hair sitting on clouds and making music. This is still a nice image with its own charm.
Sometime during my life I found my fascination with angels on cemeteries. And many of those angels I found on cemeteries in England - I love the cemeteries there, they're wild and kind of overgrown and nestled in the churchyard of these old old churches. It reminds me of "Woman in White" and other somber literature.
I found this particular angel in the churchyard of Guiting Power, a little honey colored village in the Cotswold Hills, one of my favorite areas in England. The picture I took of him is not very good, but with the help of the magic of Photoshop and one of Kim Klassen's textures/backgrounds the angel turned into something else. I was searching for a sentiment for a long time until Psalm 91, 11-12 came into my mind.
For He shall give his angels charge over thee,
that they shall protect thee in all the ways thou goest,
that their hands shall uphold and guide thee,
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
This comes pretty close to my idea of angels.
