Fourth Day of Creation 11"x14" tempera

The tools I use are all
100% natural and come
from the earth.  Clay on
wood is the pallet,
minerals from the earth
mixed with the yolk of
an egg provide the
colors, and the gold for
the halo is gold leaf.  
After each icon is
completed, the surface
is covered with Olifa, a
natural linseed oil.  It is
applied by hand and
serves to protect the
icon and is also a sign
of anointing.
