Martinka Family Icon: COMPLETED!

A few months ago, back in March, when we got my tax return we decided to commission a Family icon. This means that we commissioned an icon that had all of the patron saints of our family.

Counter-clockwise from bottom left St. Juvenaly of Alaska (+1796), Saint Katherine the Great Martyr(+305), Saint Konstanin of Merkushino (+1918), and Saint Natalia of Nicomedia (+306)

The image below is a pre-varnish image sent the other day. Nun Anastasia started the varnishing process today (4 coats) and said that will take a week or so to finish and then she will send another image of the icon when it is varnished, I absolutely LOVED her work before when looking at her website, now that I have an icon of my very own of hers I am ecstatic.

    Plus you have seen her (MOTHER Anastasia’s) work in person and seen how good it is (i.e. my St Euphrosynos icon and the McGowan Family icon too)!

      Agreed. She does amazing work and whenever anyone requests information on Family icons I point them in her direction. No one else I would even consider. Question though, with something like that, it is proper to have it blessed at Church, correct?
