Fall of Lucifer

I just completed the oil painting at the left. It is a 24X36 abstract image of St. Michael defeating Lucifer and casting him into the emptiness of hell. The painting is executed in painting knife on stretched canvas. The concept is to use multiple layers of thick paint with an emphasis on primary colors to depict the violence of combat between the two spiritual beings.
This is a continuation of my desire to bring modern techniques and materials to traditional Catholic themes.
