TWO COMMISSIONS / MILES APART

It seems that commissions come when least expected.

From unexpected people

and

for unexpected places.

 Over the years I have learned not to be surprised,

only to smile.

I recently received and completed two commissions. Their final homes are 2,350 miles apart. Go figure.

Below are brief progress reports and the completed pieces.

    Andrij –

    The Icons look so sacred!
    I hope that people will pray to them since they are so beautiful.

    You have combined spiritual grace and technical excellence.
    Bravo!

    I remember, a long time ago, you told me that one keeps doing what we have to do, and that things will come and fall into place.

  4. Myshka says:

    I love the one of the Blessed Mother. Her face conveys so much peace and love.
    Andrij, your work, as always, is outstanding.

    Beautiful work, Andrij!
    I especially love the inscription and the inclusion of the saints on the Icon of Mary and the infant Christ.
