Like traditional panel icons, these works are intimate in scale, subject, and viewer involvement;

appropriate liturgically, perhaps, for chapels, reconciliation rooms, and smaller gathering spaces; as well as private homes and personal spaces.  My hope is that they might help move one to pray.

 

(No, No! Sorry! No more than you could enter a gallery and walk off with a painting you lifted from the wall, may you enter this virtual gallery and reproduce any of these images in any form without the express permission of the artist or the current owner.)
