The return of the guardian angels!
years ago these sentinels appeared a number of times in my work - and here they are again. This painting, 'Troth, with maidens and angels' is part of my Borde Hill project and has reference in part to weddings, this then is a response to that influence. There is more to do on this painting but in the main it is established. 
The frieze like arrangement of six figures encompass seen and unseen realms with minimum disruption, making it natural, not unlike the way Samuel Palmer worked on his glowing pastoral pieces in the late 19th Century.
