Painting an Icon of Saint Nicholas

Although many children will wait until the eve of December 24th to look for Santa Claus, this week, much of the church celebrates the life and continuing intersessions of the saint behind these stories, Nicholas of Myra. With joy, the studio completed an icon of this great saint and that my daughter Claire and I filmed a conversation about it. In our talk, we discuss this ancient bishop’s history, the canonical considerations when painting such an icon, the studio’s distinctive style, and the use of the traditional “Chocolate Brown” from the region.
