City of Angels: Click Here If You Need One Or Two

Can you hear the rustle of draperies and the flutter of wings? It’s the angels, who have popped in to DailyArtDaily to say hi to all lovers of angelic music, fluffy wings and the movie with Meg Ryan and Nicholas Cage (me included!). Jokes apart, they’re here for everyone to sooth, console and support because, in the end, who doesn’t need an angel in their lives? Let them embrace you with their delicate arms.
