to New Christian Icons

Holy Icons originated in the very early centuries of Christianity, hundreds of years before the great schism that separated the Eastern Church from the Western Church. Today, new Christian icons are being painted by Orthodox, Catholics, and Protestants. Most importantly, they are being understood as windows into eternity for a young generation of Christians.

Christ is Risen!  

This Icon was recently completed for a collector in Miami.  It is painted using egg tempera and gold leaf gilding on an Icon board hand made by Miroslav in Serbia.

“Jesus said to her, “Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father.  But go to my brothers and say to them, “I am ascending to my Father, to my God and your God.”    Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”; and she told them that He had said these things to her.”    John 20:17


God’s love can sometimes be apprehended through an Icon more easily than a book, or sermon. Our culture is desperately in need of God’s love, and since images speak directly to our hearts, icons speak to many people. In addition to the joy we have in writing the Icon, we can share it with many, many people. Writing icons can be an act of service, giving of the talents we have been blessed with. Icons speak today using the images, symbols and spiritual foundations of Byzantine Russia.
