I had originally planned to post an update once there was a confirmation of a centenary icon commission. But given that the back and forth as to what the content of the icon should be is still underway, I thought that I should at least post a note. The design of the icon is complex in that the centenary has a specific theme and the back and forth has been about how the theme can be implemented within the icon itself.
The original time frame for completion of the icon was early January, but with my two back to back art exhibitions from late Janyary to the end of March, we were looking at postponing the completion of the icon until April. But with the decision process still underway, and no firm agreement in place, it is hard to know when I could start preparing the large icon board or when the completion date will be.
I hope to receive word very soon about my most recent recommendation for the design of the icon. There is much to do in preparation; ordering the archival paint supplies, getting the icon board constructed and prepared traditionally, etc.
