Since this is my second blog page, it generally takes me longer (sometimes very long) to reply to your comments, but I do read and love them!

Ascent and Descent, 36 x 36 inch , oil, St.Germain

- In one of my next posts (in next few weeks) on main blog MYSTERIES
read why I posted this painting....
Some interesting anecdotes surrounding the painting when it was  finished
- Design wise, the "ladder" (ascent and descent) started with an "X" 
with the angels displayed on the "X" with more of a loop.
- my take on angels is that they have different personalities, fitting with their task
