Nude portrait of the Archangel Michael. I enjoyed painting this piece very much. I also tried to go with a more traditional color scheme for angels (white wings, gold, brown and RED).

The Genderless Angel(s).
Angels, like everything else in the world that is religious/spiritual, is UP to everyone's interpretation, as well as subject to local beliefs. For example in Orthodox church, angels don't have any bodies at all. Only heads with six wings. So, whether angels have genders or not, is up to what *YOU* want them to have. *I* want them to have genders. In MY world they have genders.
That said, if the subject is not to your liking, or you aren't comfortable with it, it has a mature content warning, please head it. If it doesn't bother you, then please accept that in MY Universe, Angels as everything else have male and female reproductive organs.
Besides, it is clearly stated that the character is copyrighted to Chantel Lysette. This is NOT my personal interpretation of the Archangel Michael, but even if it were, my interpretation would also have all the necessary equipment.
; Thank you ever so much for the wonderful critique on this painting!
