""Adam loves apples"" by Lilia Estrada


Papier mache cross created from newpaper. Angel at the top has halo created from matchsticks painted with gold. The piece is painted with acrylics. I have added many cliches like: Red rover , red rover let adam come over, also an apple a day keeps the doctor away, Also a very old cliche : Apple core who is your friend.
Take care and hope you enjoy the cross....

thank you Scylla. Yes one of the angel saying is "Red Rover Red Rover let ...come over"..Use to play this @ school in elementary. There is another part of my life also,,,,I use to be married to an alcholic named Joe...the devil sort of represents him..:(..this was my way of venting my anger at the time. I did divorce him and now do not have to deal with all his drinking problems. This is why the devil is holding a beer....I use to also hear the phrase "Apple core who is your friend"..silly game when after you ate an apple you would throw the core at who ever you named..:)..I love telling stories on my art...again thank you for the kind comments...
