SAINT JAMES RIDES WEST

 

A while back,

you were teased with a Icon in progress

of

Saint James.

 

dscn1245

It was being worked on alongside the Angel of God Icon.

The Angel was completed and went of to his new home in Wilmington Delaware.

Saint James on the other hand, has been catching up.

Well the finish line is at hand and he is ready.

The piece was ordered by a client in California, who has in since relocated to Washington state.

    From my first commission with Mr. Maday in 1995 (referred to me by Holy Transfiguration Monastery with a handwritten note “he’s good!”) to this icon, Mr. Maday’s work has only improved.

    The .jpegs don’t do this icon justice, it is magnificent!

    Currently it is reposing on the altar at church for 40 days.

    God bless the hands…
