Like a Fable
The textures very and are really nice contrasting. It seems like an old painting, one of like a lore of old times. However, it has that modern, almost emo feel to it (I hope you excuse the word) and it has emotional ties to it too. There's a mixture of clear cut lines, and smudgy paints, which I think is good.
There is the one angel, who seems to be tied to the ground by sand, and the other angel, who seems to be tied by a rope round the neck, wings burning. The sand angel is trying to save the roped angel, but can't seem to reach. It portrays a kind of love lost, an emotion that is universal, and allows us to connect with the character.
Very fable-esque, like telling a story through a painting of what happened in myth. The nudity I don't think people will find offensive, since it reminds me of the old Roman and Greek paintings (or whatever) when they had gods who were painted naked but not necessarily with erotic desires.
There is the sense of professionalism that draws you in, that this is a well polished art with a story to tell. I felt the X factor mostly because of the above reasons, and the atmosphere that these elements, fused together, generated.
It's a great painting with large emotional tug along with it. Some people might find the nudity offensive; I myself did not, even though I am particularly keen to shun that kind of sexuality. It helps portray the story of two angels ripped apart of their friendship with an almost-chance of hope, diminished. Thanks for sharing with us your beautiful art.
