I was playing with what colors would represent which season, SPRING, SUMMER, AUTUMN, WINTER. I named this piece, "All Seasoned Madonna" as this woman and child walked through every season together.

As angels have a title of "Guardian", I think it is important to invite them to go ahead of you and make a way.
