The beat of her wings rest upon our ears
like distant thunder
like the strike of the moon cross the hot black sky
She is a rising star and a falling thought
the sweet caress of the mind wash smooth by sleep

Beautiful Leliel, Angel of Night
you've been away too long


I started this November 21, 2006. That's 3 years, 9 months, 1 day or 1,370 days in total. This is also the first new addition to my Angelarium series since I first posted Raziel in May '06.

This is easily the longest it has ever taken me to finish a painting. It went through 11 major iterations to get here and has almost no resemblance to the original WIP. I hope you all enjoy it :)

This painting is dedicated to my wife, who I promised 4 years ago that I would give her a copy of this once it was finished.

This is probably my favorite piece of yours :) The color scheme and background are beautiful and flow well together, and I really like how you painted the wings and cloth.

It seems to me a mixture of Batman and a Black Patrono. He's like a God of the Moon. Fingers indicating something with his left hand make it more profane toward right hand that seems to rest on the serene heart giving more intensity and humanity to the night angel. Gorgeous!

The colors chosen are as stunning as the idea. I wish you'd post the unfinished versions too.

funny how the name is close to " Leyl " which means night in arabic

Well hebrew and arabic are both Semitic languages, there are bound to be words with similar sounds and meanings.

Getting off track , this is an amazing piece of art Clap
