Saint Francis of Assissi

Just thought I'd show you guys what's probably my most famous icon, Saint Francis of Assissi, done for Francis Hall of Franciscan University (what a mouthful!):

Photo graciously given by Sean Monger.
This is probably the most personal icon I've ever done that was for commission, given that I'd lived in Francis Hall for two and a half years, and that I knew I was leaving. This icon was my good-bye to the hall that had been my home, and I wanted to show how grateful I was to all the people who had been my family, and how sad I was (and still am) that I had to leave.

Here's to you, Francis Hall. I'll never forget.
