The design for the icon of St. Mother Teresa has been confirmed.
Once an offer was accepted for the condo, I was able to get back in my studio and get to the messy work of preparing the next icon board, and gessoed.
The design has been transferred to the board and inked in.
It is based on a photo that I saw on Photobucket. The poor of this world clutch to her as she clutches the poor with those strong hands that have given everything in their service. In the gaze of her eyes, we see strength, the weight of her work, the strength of grace, and her plea that we follow her path.
