    As others seem to think the idea of a thread where TAW iconographers can post their icons is a good idea, I figured I might as well set the ball rolling....

    Here is one I did of Metropolitan Leonty for Fr. Basil S. in Lorain, Ohio. Fr. Basil is leading the movement to have Leonty recognized as a saint so I have been told that I might soon need to add a halo to the icon and change his title to saint. This icon is 18x24.

    Do work in progress icons count? St Nicholas is going to take me FOREVER before I can post a finished piece!

    Ok, when I have a decent camera again next I'll take a photo and post it :) You'll have to forgive a few stray threads, I'm beginning and ending threads a lot at the moment (lots of colour changes) and there's bits of thread everywhere!

    I would prefer to see Matt post his own icons on here, but if worst comes to worst I will photograph the icon of St. Andrei Rublev that I bought from Matt and post it on here.

    i didn't know icons can be embroidered!
    i do bead embroidery but i have a feeling that's not an appropriate medium for an icon

    Sorry I've been a little distracted the last few days, but I guess I could post a few things.

    This is an icon of Christ in Glory that I painted for a show at St. Vincent College last year. It's always been one of my favorite images, and it was nice to paint it in a large enough size to see what I was painting.

    Here's an icon of one of my absolute favorite Saints, St. Nektarios:

    I was blessed to make a very short day trip to Aegina a few years back. It was an amazing experience to be in the presence of St. Nektarios if only for a few minutes.

    We found out today that the icon of Christ in Glory that is behind our altar at church is painted by Met. Jonah... Pretty cool and rather random. :clap:
