My blog is year old! Happy Anniversary!

Christ, The Saviour. 5 x 7" Delica bead tapestry.

With all that commotion we have in our house with new born puppies I totally forgot about the fact that my blog just turned one year old!

Looking behind I see my first try-outs with oil pastel and with soft pastel indeed. It is good to see the difference that this year has made. Looking forward to next wonderful year of painting!...

So far here is a something totally new I want to share with you all.

So far I was painting, Irina was working on new design I made I just for her.
Few years ago we had an idea about starting with beaded tapestry on a loom and so here it is - our first "fruit of the loom".

This is a beaded copy of one of the oldest known icons of Christ in encaustic. Our version is done in Japanese Delica bead.

Now we are working on framing options etc. More will be coming. Stay tuned!


  1. Tatiana, this is absolutely stunning! I am not sure who Irina is, but she does beautiful work!

  2. To keep it simple - Irina (Ira) is my sister. She lives with us and helping me with dogs and with everything else... For this icon my part of work all was done on computer (colors and bead count), Ira is a one brave woman, who put it all together.

  3. Very pretty! Those are some teeeny tiny beads! I don't know if I'd have the patience to string them all, but I am glad you did!

  4. Tatiana and Irina, this is beautiful. I can't wait to see this. Will it be in the A&S exhibit? CONGRATUALTIONS ON THE PUPPIES! Hope all went well. Can't wait to see those pics.

  5. Thank You, Deb!
    Thank You, Pat!

    Yes, it will be at A&S show later on at spring... maybe we will be able to come up with the second one too, I'm not sure yet. Need to figure out how to frame it first.
