Recently completed for a local parish, this Annunciation piece is not in a traditional iconographic style, but is actually a combination of several. There are elements from icons, as in some of the white robes, some Gothic elements, in the background at the top, and even some pre-Raphaelite influences with the decorative nature of the cloth, carpet, and the style of the faces. I was not sure if this was going to work, but the feedback I have gotten so far is positive.

I’ve started making smaller studies as not everyone wants something 5 feet tall – here is one in progress based on the Madonna done for the Berryville Trappist Monastery.
18 by 24 inches, egg tempera, gold, oils.
Madonna and Child Panel
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.
Final Christ the Teacher Icon
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.

New Icon 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.
