This is a new collection of work called Illuminated Icons. I saw an exhibit at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles years ago on the Illuminated Manuscripts. The work was exquisite. The wealth of images and the attention to detail on such a small scale was truly humbling. I am attempting to recreate some of these images in this group of work incorporating watercolor, mixed media, and digital media. This is one of the images so far. It won't take me long to start incorporating fabric, stitching in my own style. Will be posting me....stay tuned.
