Ted! Strangely enough, the priest at the retreat centered his talks around Angels. It went well with the book, and I remember something he said he heard while in the seminary. One of his instructors made a point while starting a talk that (paraphrasing) Angels are not our friends by definition, but spiritual allies… you have to share the same nature to be a friend. An interesting thought worth pondering. If you haven't read the book mentioned above, it is a quite good. It broadened my understanding of the relationship between God and mankind, and how it changed from the Old to the New Testament.
I finished this sketch in my notebook last night. It's colored pencil with an acrylic/watercolor wash.
