Pieta of the Angel

Inspired by The Tragedy of Man by Imre Madach, Michelangelo’s Pieta, Saint Bride by John Duncan and The Vintner’s Luck by Elizabeth Knox.

Sobran is caught by an angel when he faints in The Vintner’s Luck.

Lucifer falls down from heaven into the garden of Eden to tempt Adam and Eve in The Tragedy of Man.  Lucifer then puts Adam and Eve in a deep sleep where he shows them the history of the future.

In Michelangelo’s Pieta, Jesus lies on his mother’s lap in a pyramidal layout that I also used below.

The wings are inspired by John Duncan’s painting of two angels taking St Bride over the sea of Scotland.

WOW!! This is beautiful! I love how you made the angel wings with all the different colors and patterns! and the way you painted the cloth looks so real! Like I could reach through the painting and touch it! I am always in awe of your paintings! They are so beautiful!
