People contact me from time to time asking for prints. For ME to make prints is expensive and there are some places out there who are tooled up for this and will make prints of uploaded art for reasonable prices. So, I have been uploading pieces to two different places listed here:
Fine Art America Site
Let me know if there is something specific you found online you want me to upload. Some folks want icon reproductions – the first place does print on wood.
I started this actually months ago – finally finished as well. Egg tempera, gold, and oil on panel. 17 by 14 inches.
I’m finished with this as well – here is the top part. This is based on a Medieval Italian icon – it’s egg tempera, oil, 24K gold.
I’m finally getting around to posting how this was finished. Final size is 6 feet by 10 feet, oil on Canvas. If you’re not familiar with traditional iconography, the lettering in the halo represents the Greek phrase, “I who Am” – referring to the divinity of Christ.

Sorry I haven’t posted anything for a while – been super busy at work. But I did want to post an image of something I’ve started working on that’s more in a 17th Century sort of style.
I’ve done the base shading, and now I’m starting to lay in the gold line, which will take awhile. I’m not going to start on the faces, hands and feet till the rest is done, since I’m doing this part in egg tempera, but I’m going to change over to oils for the skin.
I’ve started on another large panel – here are some images of the initial stages. The gold is done, the initial roskrysh done, now I’m working on the first lights.
