When I was a child my uncle always referred to me as “the artist” since I was forever drawing, colouring, sculpting and doing just about anything that could be considered art (I used to even put together “nature displays” – nicely arranged sticks, stones and leaves inside boxes). So, when Xenia Kathryn asked if I would review her calendar on my blog I jumped at the chance to promote a fellow artist. Her calendar is so delightful – full of colour and artistic skill – I am excited to have it hang in my home for the 2015 year.
I highly recommend purchasing one (and perhaps one for a friend) and supporting an Orthodox artist. And if that isn’t encouragement enough for you, the proceeds from the calendars will go to the Building Fund of St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Oregon: so you get a calendar and get to contribute to the building of an Orthodox temple!
I hope that you can find a spot for one of these calendars in your kitchen, your office, your dorm room– wherever! May it brighten your day, and encourage in your day-to-day Faith
The calendar features 13 copyrighted watercolor and/or pen and ink illustrations, running from January 2015 through January 2016. Included are the twelve major feast days, Great Lent and other important dates in the ecclesiastical year, according to the New Calendar (Gregorian). It is printed on medium weight cardstock, and is ready to hang on your wall.
Proceeds from calendar sales will go to the Building Fund of St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Oregon. Your purchase benefits my parish, and the spreading of the Orthodox Faith in west Portland.
This wall calendar measurements: 7.5”(height) x 10” (width) folded.
Unfolded, as presented on your wall, it will measure 15”(height) x 10” (width).
