PAINT PARTY FRIDAY WEEK 51, YEAR 2

I really look forward to PAINT PARTY FRIDAYs... I love going through and seeing all the other things that other artists post about :-D
Today I show you one of the classic Icons I painted last year.  This is one of the versions of St George and I have used gold for the frame and to embellish parts of the painting. This one is painted with egg Tempera - as per the traditional method. I have to be very careful with this as I am always licking brush tips or putting them in my mouth the wrong end round...... not a good idea when some of the Tempera powders are highly toxic !!!... snort !!!
If you really want to see craftsmanship on a vast scale with this method, then visit some churches if you ever are in Greece. The decoration will blow your socks off !!!
Anyhoo, here's my modest piece.

Icons are so difficult and have so many layers. You've really done a great job on this one. It has that sacred feel to it and seems to be timeless.

Modest? Really? It looks purely professional to me. Are you selling your pieces to the churches over there? If not you should.
