An Angel, Raphael
Today I went to my iconography teacher’s house to choose my next subject.
It wasn’t hard at all, I had already told her that I thought I wanted to paint an angel, so she had gone through her drawings and pictures to find examples of several. I had already chosen Raphael, or so I thought, and when I saw this version of the Archangel Raphael, I became certain.
Raphael is mentioned in the book of Tobit. Raphael travels with Tobias and there is a dog in the story. Need I say more? 😛
Besides, Raphael is so very beautiful.
