FINISHING TOUCHES ON LATEST ICON

Work on the “MEETING OF THE LORD IN THE TEMPLE” Icon has been complete!

Shown, above, is the last stage of the painting process – faces being finished. This was followed by three coats of a protective sealer / varnish.  A HUGE thank you to Cristina McCarthy, Chair of the Interior Design Department at Virginia Marti College, for the use of the ID Studio for this stage – and to student Elaine Kosco for the photo.

Finally shown is the completed Icon, as well as a detail!

The Icon measures 46 x 54 1/2″ and was executed with 22k gold and acrylic on polyflax. It has been shipped to Saint Nectarios Cathedral in Seattle, Washington, for installation. Hopefully they are smiling………

Stay tuned. More to come……..

    Out of pure curiosity, hadn’t you applied protective sealer to your work in the past?

    Just wondering why it required a special location outside of the obvious – ventilation and all.

      Great question Janet!

      I have always applied a protective sealer to all the pieces.

      As far as the location: ventilation was not an issue (the sealer is water based / no odor / very quick drying) but rather the press of time!

      This way I was able to coat the Icon before and between teaching classes – I just ran back and forth from my class to the ID Lab and worked fast! 🙂
