Conestoga Icons
December 2020


Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:Friends]—

Although many children will wait until the eve of December 24th to look for Santa Claus, this week, much of the church celebrates the life and continuing intersessions of the saint behind those stories, Nicholas of Myra.

With joy, the studio completed an icon of this great saint and that my daughter Claire and I filmed a conversation about it. In our talk, we discuss this ancient bishop's history, the canonical considerations when painting such an icon, the studio's distinctive style, and the use of the traditional "Chocolate Brown" from the region.

I invite you to watch and listen to our conversation on the studio's new youTube channel. To be alerted when new videos are added, don't forget to subscribe.

All the best,
