I've just finished this angel painting called The Blessing. Angels do not have to be associated with a particular religion or indeed any religion at all. They can be symbolic of a thought or wish, and seen as guardian figures. Here I painted the angel holding a sword to symbolise a request for protection and strength. I hope you like her
Thanks to `mjranum-stock
for the use of his photograph as reference when painting the figure. It was very helpful to help make a natural pose.
