Both this, and your other Michael depiction are brilliant works of art that I am happy to fave! Under my comment on the other Michael painting of yours I gave more detailed reasons why I adore these and my own bits of wisdom and knowledge regarding the nature of angels (as to how I know such things, that's my secret. *Wink*)... but in any event, I do rather like how you've chosen in these to portray the feminine sides of these divine beings rather than the more traditional male-oriented aspects. The background in this painting is breathtaking too, a very ethereal heavenly sky-scape with some nicely detailed architecture thrown in to show us that Heaven is an inhabited place rather than some nebulous domain where things just flit around. The notion of a more "civilized" heaven is something I adhere to spiritually, as well, so it is cool to see that sort of a take on the subject. That expression on Michael (actually I should say Michelle's) face is one of pure warrior determination, a look I'd know anywhere. It is a look that says you do not mess with the woman who holds that big golden sword. Love it! Amazing artistry.
