What a beard!

Of all the "icon drawings" I've done thus far, this one is my personal fave. All the more so because I felt quite inadequate when drawing it, and yet didn't care. So of course, as happens, simply drawing him turns out to make me decide to paint an icon of him, whereas the thought of painting an icon of St. Barnabas would never have occurred to me. I like the way the ascetic features (like the beard) combine with the lively stare of the eyes. This guy's a worker. An apostle!
