SEATTLE MURALS MOVING FORWARD

Over the last few years,

I have been slowly working on the interior of

Saint Nectarios Cathedral

in

Seattle, Washington.

Although a rather small and modest structure, non-the-less the congregation embarked on a long term project to completely cover the interior walls with Biblical – Scriptural scenes.

Work progresses as funds become available.

(Sometimes faster, other times slower 🙂 )

Am currently working on a batch of Icons,  the smaller ones being approximately 4 x 5 feet and the largest 7 x 14 feet.

I wanted to share a progress report on one of the pieces with you today ……

    Beautiful colorful and very well synchronized both in paints isolated as between these and the whole.
    Question please:
    Auras are painted (which technique?) Or resolved with gold leaf?
    Thank you so much and congratulations Mr Maday
