Power Angel to the rescue

 Luis Gutierrez' story (above) pretty much tells it all.

The artist's Power Angel caught my eye in a building on the ASU campus. I love the blue background, the powerful fist thrust into the air, the wings.   It wasn't until I'd read Luis's story about feeling a little lost in Germany that I noticed the Power Angel walks with a cane.

I love how the wings helped Luis reframe how he felt in Berlin.  His imagined angel wings gave him purpose and confidence.

And the Power Angel he painted after he came home stands strong in this busy building in Phoenix, offering others a way to tell themselves and others they are there for a higher purpose.
