BLUE ANGEL

The Work

Besides the obvious intrinsic beauty of the design work of the great Betty Willis, who is also known for her design of the world-famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, the history and personal memories surrounding the Blue Angel drew me to her. I am not alone. The entire community seems to have connected to the beatific smile of the Blue Angel and seem to have adopted my mural, A Phalanx of Angels Ascending, in a big way.

These are just a few examples from an extensive body of work. Customized lenticular and fine art prints are available.
