Iconography 101, completed

by abbamoses

Holy Unmercenary and Martyr Panteleimon, pray for us!

The icon whose progress I reported in an earlier post is done! We’re taking it to church tonight to have it blessed, after which I guess it will be a real icon.

When I look at it, all I see are the many errors that I learned about in my class, but standing back and squinting, I’d say that for a first effort I’m not too displeased.

I’ve already started preparing some boards for more icons, and am filled with anxiety at the thought of working on my own. I thank Nadica, our wonderful teacher, for bringing me this far.
