Music I listened to while working on this painting:
“Fly” by Ludovico Einaudi
You can listen on the MusicPlayer at the top of this post.
Thoughts for this piece:
St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Question #108 Hierarchies and Orders of the Angels
“As we have noticed, our human knowledge of angels is not direct and perfect; we cannot know angels as they are in themselves. In our imperfect way, we assign many angels to each order, even while we realize that, since each angel is a complete species, it has its own specific office, and, to that extent, its own order. We cannot discern what these specific offices and orders are. If star differ from star in glory, much more does angel differ from angel. Our classification of angelic orders is, therefore, a kind of general classification.”
Is there an order of angels that inspire artists? Do angels paint? If so, can they use light as a medium?
Thanks for stopping by to look at my art ~Scarlett
