Beautiful cards depicting the life of Christ using centuries old techniques and patterns.
Want to send a special note? These are some special cards!
I write icons based on Byzantine tradition. Each icon is created according to a pattern handed down through the centuries. The emphasis is not on innovation, but adherence to a spiritual tradition meant to draw the viewer closer to Christ. Yet each hand painted piece is an original bathed in prayer and carrying the whisper of the one who painted it.
The process of writing an icon is slow and meditative and involves many steps. I work in egg tempera and 24K gold on natural gesso. It takes 3-4 weeks for me to create each one.
My goal is to create a series of five icons from the life of Christ. I will then have them printed onto high quality vellum note cards (envelopes included). I will include a short description of the imagery on the back. The card can easily be kept in a Bible to enhance devotional time, or sent with a personal note to someone else. Everybody needs Jesus!
To be included:
The Holy Family
Jesus Casts Out the Demons
Man of Sorrows
Christ Enthroned in Glory
I am asking for enough to fund my first small print run and buy needed art supplies. If I raise more than my goal, I would like to make a sixth image to add to the series that will of course be added to the complete collection sent to my $25+ backers. Cards will be delivered in plenty of time to send out for Christmas.
I would be delighted to have you be a part of my work!
