May runs into June and the Archangels show up

 In May 2012 I took a one week Icon workshop at a Russian Orthodox Monastery in Jordanville, NY. 
The class was taught by two Russians with a translator. The fruit of that week is the egg tempra Icon of St. Michael on the left. This past May, I was working an old canvas and experimenting with colors, in acrylic. The fruit of that is the painting on the right, again, St. Michael.
