Dear in Christ,
I don't have thousands of dollars to spend on hand-painted iconography for my chapel, nor do I like the look of eclectically-arranged mounted icon prints from Skete.com or HTM of various sizes and shapes dotting otherwise white walls. I have seen an example of an icon printed on canvas, and have now heard of a mission priest who actually used it extensively. Basically, someone with a digital SLR camera took photographs of icons at extremely high resolution, and then they took them to a local printer who printed them up on canvas. The result is something that almost looks like a hand-painted icon to the average person. These icons were mounted on walls in a pre-arranged manner that did not look cluttered.
Has anyone else heard of this or seen it? Recommendations for or against? Caveats?
I realize some might find the idea strange, but I don't see how it is much different than using mounted icon prints. But I am open to arguments against following this course of action along with accounts of those who have done it or seen it and thought it worked well.
