Making an icon of the Transfiguration of Christ for the Chapel of the Transfiguration in Teton Park has been simmering on the back burner of my mind for some time. For an iconographer, The Transfiguration is an important icon to paint. Within it resides the purpose of all icons — to show the transfigured human not just as a portrait of what is there, but rather how God sees that person. So the task of painting The Transfiguration is one I approach with a bit of fear and trembling.
The Chapel kept calling to me to paint and with the help and support of many others, I began.
Rather than write a series of blog posts, I have elected to tell the story of the icon’s development with a gallery and attachments on a single page. I will be updating the page frequently with progress reports.
