About the Book
My first experience with shrines,and the ritual of lighting a candle as the first gesture of the day, was in India. Since then I have lived on three continents and have been fascinated with the home altars people make to have a daily communion with God. This book represents years of researching traditional Icons, and reinterpreting them in contemporary materials to make them available for your home, your 'visits' with God and the saints.
After turning fifty I changed all my circumstances and started to paint. Noticing the general neglect and bad quality of most of the religious art that was for sale in the greeting card market, I vowed to change that. See my website for what came of all that:www.marianndunsmore.com I have published a Portfolio that is available in 8x10 or 7x7. The standard paper weight is 80lb, premium is 100lb.If you have the money, upgrade to premium paper.
