Temperance

Here’s the preliminary sketch for the next painting, Temperance. I like the idea that angels are the intermediary between us and God, and that there is a protective spirit about each of us.

What do you think? A series of Temperance, Fortitude, Prudence, Justice? Let temperance chasten, fortitude support and prudence direct you. Let justice be the guide of all your actions.

I like the sketch at the bottom left. She’s holding two jugs, pouring water from one to the other without spilling any. I intend to paint her in a dress divided in two by red and white, with a black and gold top.
