September-October 2015: Better Angels

by Colleen Murphy

Birth of an Angel
oil painting, 24 x 24 inches
by Colleen Murphy
Indianapolis artist Colleen Murphy believes angels surround her always (as they do everyone) and works with them in her art, her Reiki practice and classes, her Divine Goddess Within Circle at the Playful Soul in Broad Ripple, and always in her daily life. Birth of an Angel reflects her awe of the Universe and her appreciation of the spiritual side of her life, especially with Angels. Colleen’s work is on display at her studio/gallery in the Stutz Building, 1060 N. Capitol Ave., A-275, in downtown Indianapolis. For an appointment, call 317-590-8316 or email Colleen@ColleenMurphyFineArt.com.
