Painting the Cupola, St Michael Catholic Church 2004

Painting the cupola of St Michaels Catholic Church, in St Michael, MN, was a massive project, even before our permitted work time was halved. We ascended the daunting scaffold, learned to find the center inside a white, seamless dome, tried to remember north from south with our heads craned backwards, cracked a lot of eggs, and finished on time. The iconographers were lead by Vladislav Andrejev and included Dmitri Andreyev, Br. Anthony Sweer, Nicholas Markell and Yevgeniy Vaskevich. Photographs were taken by Yevgeniy Vaskevich.
