WONDERFUL ICON!!!!! Galya Nikolova painting a portrait of Saint Nicholas. And we're near Christmas already. I prefer much more the original Nicholas than the current icon dressed in red and white. Well, I don't know. I like Santa Claus too, but the original human being is much more interesting. And you have captured all his goodness in his shape. I love his expression, and the colors you use, imitating the frescoes. Did you take this portrait from any temple in particular? It must be GREAT.CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I love your St. Nikolas, my dear Nikolova!!!!!!!
Чудна икона!Честит и празничен да е днешният ден, поздрав :-)
Beautiful!Greetings from Aleksandra
Thank you all!Dear Elio, today in Bulgaria is the day of St.Nicolas, regarding the orthodox church calendar. He is the saint of the sailors and the fishermen so today in Bulgaria everybody eats fish:). Santa Claus, well I like this guy too:)Since the name of my grandfather was Nicolas, I gave this icon to my grandma Maria who lives in a small town near Tarnovo. I am very glad that you like the icon, I tried to make it more human because you know, somehow I think that the purpose of these icons is to become a bridge between us and heaven.Благодаря,Димитрина,Честит празник също на теб и твоите близки!Thank you Alexandra,your opinion means much to me.Kindest regards!
Nice icon! Also in Belgium it is St. Nicolas day. All the children get toys as gifts.Have a nice Saint Nicolas day!!
