St. Kyrana

In this photo, I am explaining to Presbytera Kyrana some things about this icon that I gave to her and to my dear friend and colleague, Father Costa. We are in the church hall of St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Massillon, Ohio during coffee hour following the Divine Liturgy.

I hope to get a better photo so that you can see the detail in this icon.

God is Love

Material: Bass wood, not oiled yet
Dimensions: 50 x 30 cm.
Location: Kent, Ohio, USA
Completed: Bright Week, 2009
Particularities: The entire icon is adorned with hearts. The frame has two layers of hearts.

I began work on this icon at the beginning of the fasting period before Pascha and completed it at Pascha.

Besides other things I could say, I want to say that this icon was extra heavy to begin with. When it was completed, this icon was super light. We made sure that we took out every wedge of wood that could be taken out in order to make it lighter.

I hope you enjoy it!
