minima maxima sunt

The Small things are the Great things; as in a grain of mustard seed.

Kells Eagle

Been on hiatus for a bit and hoping to get back into the blogs. I have had time for a new offering of art. Now right off the bat, I need to say that I didn’t draw this. I really did just fill in with color and gold and paint. I kind of took the tattoo approach and applied it to a manuscript. Using gel pens, gold paint for “gilding”, sharpies, and watercolor, I was planning to take a few pics of illuminated manuscripts and touch them over. Sort of a faux facsimile.

The Kells eagle is one of my favorite symbol from historical Christian imagery. It represents the Apostle John and this pic is based on the Book of Kells version of this Evangelical Symbol.
