Some years ago I concerned myself with the existence of angels as numinious beings standing above any religious denominations.
These three paintings are the result of my meditation and imagination.

They are the male materialisation of the idea of CATHARSIS, COGNITION and of THE ESCORT OF DEATH.

Amazing pictures! I was wondering if by any chance you did pictures of women angels, and if soo i could give you many great ideas for paintings since I have been roleplaying and writing storys and poems ever since I was about 9.

I also love the way you draw these pictures and such, its very amazing.

And thank you for inviting me to your blog, I really appreciate it!

to Angel :
Thank you for your comment! I'm very pleased that you like my pictures!
Sorry, I'm a little bit in stress at the moment, but I should like to read your poems and stories for I should like to know more about you!
Actually I painted only these 3 angels who have an androgynous look as you can see ...
Speaking about "the male materialisation" I'm following the Chinese doctrine of YIN & YANG!
Love and peace!

To Spencer:

Thanks,Spencer, today during my work in the hospital I saw your face again and again in the mind's eye ... I see I have to make sometime a sketch of you :-)!
See you :-)

I hope everything is okey with your friend at the hospital. I liked the ECard but I dont know who the person was who was on there. Thanks anyway.

Have a good weekend!

to Angel again:
Thanks, I have no personal friend at the hospital! I'm working there since 13 years at a neurological ward as a masseur and as an art-therapist for neurologial patients! That's about my stress!

I love your poems, David, and your narrative style!

The Angel of Death is so serenely beautiful, Hans. I think that has to be right. The traditional figures of Death, many of which are descended from the first great Bubonic plague in the 1300s, are horror figures. But yours is a welcoming and radiant creature, the perfect gatekeeper to a newer and greater consciousness.

Welcome, Will! I didn't count the days and so I was a little bit surprised that you are already back in Boston! The short time with you and Fritz in Vienna was great! It's a pity that beautiful hours are passing by so quickly.
The model for the angels I have been myself in front of a mirror ... naturally many years ago ;-) so I was abel to change the facial expressions in that manner I thought it would be rightly adapted to the subject!

When time will come to deceace I hope I will be able to immagine this Angel of Death ... so that I could close my eyes without any fear for I shall be snuggled by him :_)

I think you will be, Hans--what a lovely thought.

We were away for the entire month except for the last three days. We enjoyed it all immensely and I'll be putting some more stories from the trip on my blog this week.

Amazingly, Will already said exactly what I was going to! If that is the angel who comes to meet me, you will know by the smile on my face.

To Will and Joey:
Thanks! It's only a pity you cant't book him in advance as you can arrange the plumber, the pizza boy or a call boy ;-)
