Alpha Challenge, Second Try


As I was not so happy with my clocks, I started on a second page with 'Cherub' as my word. Then the page disappeared under one of my many piles....I found it again, and have now managed to get it finished. The page has been painted with gesso, before sponging on some metallic paints and inks  and letting them drip and smudge. The cherub is a stamp from LaBlanche. I just used the middle of the stamp, and went round the edges with a fine liner before adding some colour. The text in the scroll at the top is from the first chapter of the book of Ezekiel. where he describes cherubs. Underneath I have written 'Cherubim' in Hebrew. The definition has been placed  in a cloud, highlighted by some symbolic sun-rays.

Have a great day, take care and thanks for visiting!

  13. This is so gorgeous, the colors, theme, the scripture, everything. I can see the shine of the metallic paints. Don't you love it when that show up in the screen photo? So often it's hard to see shiny things.
