Angels are beautiful creatures. Stories about them both in religion and in fantasy never fail to capture my interest. Of all the angels in the lore of Magic: The Gathering, Avacyn is my favorite. Her being a creation of a vampire planeswalker makes her existence something of a paradox and for some reason, that fascinates me to no end. As everyone familiar with the story of MTG already know, Avacyn had already been destroyed. Still, I'd like to hear more about her and I'm wishing she'd be brought back someday. This painting is a tribute to both MTG and the legendary archangel.
