Storm on the Sea of Galilee

(After icon from aquinasandmore) The biblical scene pitches nature against human frailty – physical and spiritual. The panic-stricken disciples have struggled against a sudden storm and as huge waves crash on all sides, they try to awaken the sleeping Christ. “Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?” he asks when awoken. He then rises to calm the fury of wind and waves.

The Prodigal Son

After dissipating his inheritance, the prodigal son returns home. He felt unworthy and remorseful and desperate. His father had been watching for his son to return and shows his unconditional love when he runs to the beloved son and embraces him with open arms. In the Jewish culture of the time this action of the father was considered highly undignified. This shows that God the Father seeks us and calls us to Him no matter what. (Luke 15)   34.5 x 29cm, 13.5" x 11.4"

Other items for sale

Icons marked 'SOLD' or 'IN PROGRESS' can be commissioned.

The above egg tempera icons are for sale, unless marked otherwise. If already sold, in some cases, a replacement icon is already painted and awaiting protective varnishing or otherwise I can paint a similar icon for you. Most are after a certain style of existing icon from around the world. No two are ever exactly the same due to the fact that my hand painted icons all have some unique characteristic and a certain ‘freshness’. Sizes may vary from the original. For commissioned icons, your wait is as long as you can bear, because the longer the paintwork is dried until it receives its final layer of varnish, the better. If your need is urgent, I can use an alternative method to hasten the drying process.

Prices vary depending on the complexity of the icon. If you wish for sizes greater than about 45 cms, I would probably paint your icon using acrylic paints but still with 22-24 carat gold halos and in some cases, backgrounds. We can communicate your wishes through telephone, email, text, or you may visit my studio.

Postage of AUD$50.00 is applied at the checkout. For items not requiring postage, a postage refund of $50 will be provided when the item is picked up from the studio.
