I’m working on a hanging for a parish in Charlottesville – here are some in progress pictures, and I’ll post more as it gets more detail. It’s 6 by 10 feet, oil on Canvas.
I’ve reordered the photos to put the most recent work first. I’ve been working on the face, hair, and hands.
It’s pretty close to done now. I switched over to oils a bit ago.
I’m working on putting back images of Christ I have painted previously, unfortunately with a big copyright statement across the middle. Things get copied around, and I find images book covers without my permission, so I have to do this.
Here’s a couple of images of the fabric area I’ve been working on in Gabriel’s Robe. All with Egg Tempera still.
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.
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.
I’ve been working on this for a few months, and now it’s done. I’m posting just four images, but there are actually many steps in-between each step that I have here. This is my variation of the traditional Eleusa icon (Virgin of Tenderness) – in this version the infant Christ is also looking at the viewer. I’ve also used a combination of egg tempera and oils, because I find I can get very rich colors that way, but I also like the texture of the egg tempera in the base.
