St. Michael

Got a sudden urge to paint some Saints, the Archangels are my faves because they are angels and saints. This is St. Michael defender in battle and protector. I felt that he had to be midnight blue and silver leaf, I also added a little diamond dust around his form, it gave him a mystical feeling and the silver gives him a glowing quality. I love painting angels and saints, they are a favorite subject of mine, they make me feel good.
He is 50x21x.75 inches oil, cold wax, silver leaf and a little diamond dust. The edges are painted, signed front and back.
