St. John the Evangelist
approx. 50cm x 100cm, 22.5ct gold leaf and egg tempera on 5-ply birch
This icon was written for the Cathedral of St John the Evangelist, Hong Kong.
I had problems locating a prototype for this icon, so asked for help from Sister Esther of Turvey Abbey at Bedford. I then spent a week in those tranquil surroundings to start the icon.
Special thanks is accorded to my tacher Ian Knowles, who generously helped with finishing touches to enrich the piece.
