About Ann Chapin

I'm an artist working on a modern interpretation of iconographic and traditional religious art with an emphasis on the use of the images for prayer and contemplation

New Annunciation Icon

Here’s a step 1 image of this icon – it’s rather large – 2 by 3 feet – and it’s based upon a hanging I did awhile back for Incarnation Parish in Charlottesville.  I’ll post images in progress.  I haven’t decided what I’ll do with it, so if you are interested, contact me.

Prints

I finally have gotten a printer and paper that will produce beautiful prints.  I’m not going to do them ‘en masse’ but on a single request basis.  The best size I have found is on 13×19 inch paper with the image being 12 by 16 inches – and that will fit nicely into a 16×20 frame  with a standard size mat.  I’m doing these with a border so that the image itself won’t be partially cropped out by the mat, as below.  I’ve done a couple for some folks, and they have been very well received!  So, if you want one just contact me via the contact page.  Each one is $100 plus shipping (which in the US is about $5 to $15).  Below I posted (with a watermark that won’t be there, obviously) the trinity icon with the border so you an see how it would be printed.  I will work on adding some other pages with prior work I’ve done.trinity-print-watermark

Christ with Disciples after Resurrection

Here are a set of images from a couple years ago that are some details of the icon of Christ meeting some of his disciples by the sea from John Chapter 21.  This is the scene where St. Peter, understanding that it Jesus, jumps into the water to hurry to shore to see him.  The other disciples are in the boat pulling in the huge haul of fish.  I apologize for the copyright on the image, but I have found work pirated all over, so it has to be done.
