The Fantastic Mr. Parkes

Fun, spiritual, thoughtful and brilliant, Michael Parkes for sometimes all that is required is idly whimsy and erotic fancy.

Angel Affair

He is to me both heretic and staunch believer. His art transcends the sometimes awful snobbery associated with fine art. If you are not familiar with is work here are a morsel to brighten your day.

The man is a devout to his craft and I encourage you to seek him out.

  6. Well if that's what angels look like, I'm glad I'm not a Catholic priest.

  7. I love these, too. They remind me of a cross between Maurice Sendak and Maxfield Parrish, both extraordinary artists who infused delicate colors with clearly-drawn fantasy elements. Sigh. I could go on and on about art all day. :)

  8. Beautiful! I am a new follower and look forward to your posts. I love Angel Affair, but really all of them are amazing.

  9. These images are lovely & you know I love all thing "whimsical"! Great post, Simone. Have a wonderful week, dear friend!
