October Leaves are Falling.

Dear Fellow Iconographers:  ezwebdetail

I’m finally accepting that summer is over, now that the leaves are falling like so many angels falling from the sky to earth.  I have some interesting links that I’d like to share with you:

Introduction to Icon Writing class at the Arts Center of the Capital Region , Troy, beginning Tuesday evenings, 6-9PM Oct 28 for 5 weeks. This class is a must for beginners!raphaelunframedweb

First, for egg tempera enthusiasts, here is an article written for Natural Pigments by a great contemporary egg tempera painter: Fred Wessel. It demonstrates thin glazing.

Second is the new Orthodox Art Journal post about Icons linking heaven and earth.

Also this link to a beautiful video from St. Petersburg showing the icon writing process.


This week in Hudson, NY, as part of ARTSWALK I am showing my new Ezekiel Icon as well as several others at the Elijah Slocum Antique shop on Warren Street.  Also have an exhibition of my paintings and Icons at the Christian Community Church in Hillsdale- my Holy Trinity Icon is there among several others.

My Icon cards are available for sale at O’Connor’s Church supply store in Albany.  And my Fine Art America site has three new icons available to purchase prints- they do a very nice job and have a wide range of mediums you can have it printed on.

NOTE TO ICON STUDENTS IN ALBANY: Monday, October 13, Icon Class is held at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church as usual, 6-9pm but Not having class October 20. Michael and I will be at our annual retreat Oct 20-24, for the Global Awakening Apostolic Network we are ordained through.rembrantweb

Hope to see or hear from you soon.

“We will keep before us the deepening and strengthening of our companions’ faith, assisting each other in meditation and prayer”.
