After the second day. You cannot believe how much work went into this - it sure doesn't look like it...
At the end of day three. Gee.
At the end of the fourth day. I am still not sure this is going to be anything I am going to feel good about.
The end of day 5.
This is it! My first icon. It is hard to photograph it because it has a sheen and it is hard to see the gold halo. That is really 24 karat gold. What a process it was to make this.
I am so incredibly grateful for the experience. I think I will probably continue to do this and I hope that my icons will get better. I just love this one, not because it is great, but because it is an icon of St. Michael the Archangel.
