Archangel Michael no. 2

This Icon was completed on linden wood and finished with oil on Saturday Junce 4, 2005.
It is one of my favored icons and this is the reason I have done it for the second time.
The dimensions are about 35X 50 cm or so, and it is about 5 cm thick.

This icon was placed in an exibit. A visitor came and after carefull examination asked me: "How did you get the grain of the wood alligned so well with the background?" He was surprised to find that this was one piece of wood and not two pieces glued together.

This icon is at the American Farm School in Thessaloniki, Greece.
