Trumpet of the Lord

22x15 watercolor on Italia acquerello 140 lb cold press paper, done yesterday for a challenge on www.WetCanvas.com The angel was actually cemetary statuary so I removed its base and portrayed her as if floating in clouds with her horn calling the saints on in.

The hymn "When the Roll is Called up Yonder" came to mind and the verse "When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound and time shall be no more, and the morning breaks eternal bright and fair..."

I just saw this and it thrilled me, especially the verse you quoted. What a good idea for a paint out ! Barb
