An Icon for The Chapel of the Transfiguration

On March 16, 2016, the vestry of The Episcopal Church in Jackson Hole approved my painting an icon of the Transfiguration to be hung in the log chapel that sits in the middle of the valley beneath the Grand Teton in Grand Teton National Park in northwestern Wyoming. The gallery below tells the story. Click on each photo to learn more. [click here to return to the thumbnails]

I Forgot the Tape Measure

The Saturday after Thanksgiving, Ron and I headed out to The Chapel so that he could check on the progress of the installation of the new carpet. While we were out there, I thought some more about an icon of the transfiguration. I began to think in concrete terms: where it could hang, how big it needed to be, whether it would have much gold on it, and so on. I usually have a tape measure in my purse but that day I could not find it. Ron measured several spaces with his hands and I translated that into inches when we got back to house. Then, there was lunch at Dornan’s.
