There is a lovely house in North Royalton, Ohio called ‘Miss Hickory’s Tea House’. My Aunt and two cousins like to meet there. The last time we were there I took a few shots for future use.

Recently, 14 of my paintings of Jesus were sold, so slowly I am adding more to my art store. The next three I named, The Way, The Truth, and The Life.

Psalm 98:8 exults:,’ Let the floods clap their hands.’ This painting reminded me of this verse.

Theotokos

Recently, I was asked to copy a traditional icon for a friend. The actual print that I copied from was quite like the above image, except that I softened and sweetened the facial expressions which struck me as somewhat severe. No doubt my rendition is much richer in color than the print of the actual icon. I hope that the original iconographer (who has probably been deceased a few centuries) can forgive me. The Greek lettering at the top represents “Mother of God” or Theotokos; the lower letters indicate “Jesus Christ conquers”. (oil paint on artist board; 11×14″)

This is the sixth in the Heart of Christ series; I am looking to more modern renditions of an honored tradition.

Grayed tones seem to lend mystery; I always enjoy such hues in paint.
