Shadow Angels Create Collages


I have two beautiful women dharma friends who are both enlightened who both created collages. Monica said that this one was inspired by some recent advice that I gave her (probably about making resolutions and intentions). I really like how the eye focuses the attention of the piece and the raw imperfection of the piece, with handwritten notes in different inks. It’s raw and human and down-to earth. I think for Monica this piece is part of a larger practice of intention. Monica has always been a very down-to earth, albeit delightfully wonderful and kind person. She’s the same person I posted about recently having stream entry.

Then my friend Polly also shared a collage she created on a social media channel when she saw Monica’s collage. I think maybe she wanted to one-up Monica, but nonetheless I like how there is a sense of healthy competition here. I feel slightly amused that this wholesome-as-fuck collage comparison was initiated by my advice to Monica when she told me about her stream entry.

Like Monica’s collage, Polly’s collage is deeply nostalgic and lively. There is a depth element as the perspective seems to be tubular, with a vague sunset in the middle. This is compared to Monica’s collage with a tubular perspective shift into the eye in the center. There does seem to be a central theme that is slightly off center in each collage. I honestly don’t know which one I like more. They are both exquisite works of art and highly pleasant to look at. I’m glad my friends Polly and Monica shared their inner beauty with us.
