I couldn't really tell you where the inspiration came from, but I can tell you that
she was absolutely inspired. I've never had a design come so quickly and easily.
She was my addition to the set in 2011.
When I sat down to draw a nativity angel,
I had in mind that I was going to draw a male angel with no wings, blowing a trumpet.
I was planning on something like the angel on the top of most Mormon temples.
But in less than 2 hours, I had drawn a female angel, with beautiful big wings,
leaning slightly forward gesturing to the baby. It is so much softer and peaceful.
I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't know she was the angel my nativity needed.
But thankfully, my pencil did. She just quite literally, drew herself.
It was a wonderful experience and she is the perfect addition to the nativity.
