The icon of Our Lady of Longmeadow

Our Lady of LongmeadowThe icon of Our Lady of Longmeadow that I just completed. It was written at Clare Priory, Suffolk, UK and in Santa Venera, Malta, in 2014 under the supervision of Fr. Richard G. Cannuli. The story behind this icon can be found here.

Dimensions of the icon were 11″ x 14″. Materials included linen-covered wood with natural gesso, 23.5 kt gold leaf burnished by hand, natural egg tempera in the Russian-Byzantine tradition, varnished with olifa upon completion.

The icon will be blessed and installed in its intended home at Saint Mary’s Parish Church, Longmeadow, MA later next month.
