Cover Art & Artist

"Just Before The Dawn" is a painting by Portland artist ShirleyAnne Morales. “It takes strength, and will, and power, to hold the light and to speak the truth clearly in areas of life where darkness prevails. This painting tells us, whether it be the longest night of the year, or the darkest hours of our lives, that we can always call upon the Great Angels of Truth and Strength to guide our hearts, minds, and actions.”

ShirleyAnn Morales is the owner of Emerald Visions & White Meadow Greeting Cards. “I seek to bring forth the intuitive, nurturing, and powerful quality of the femine essence, so needed in today’s world. My paintings of Fairies and Angels are born of a desire to share the joy, sweetness, and protective guidance of the Magical presence of the unseen.”

ShirleyAnn limits her illustration work to serve only those businesses, organizations, and individuals whose commitment is to inspire a higher quality of life. Prints, Greeting Cards, and original artwork are available through White Meadow, P.O. Box 180, Corbett, OR 97019 or shirleya@cyberhighway.net
