These three icons are the only hand-painted icons in my collections. At the top are our wedding icons, painted by Fr. Ted Koufos, and below is the icon of my patron saint, The Holy Right-Believing Prince Alexander Nevski, painted by Archbishop Alypy (Gamanovich).
The wedding icons are on the mantle over our fireplace, in what my wife calls "the Russian zone." On the mantle are an icon of St. Nicholas from Bari, an icon of St. George (my father's patron saint), another icon of the Theotokos, a samovar, and our wedding candles. Hanging above the mantle is a wooden shield emblazoned with the Imperial Great Seal.
Most of the artwork in our house is iconography. Each room has at least one icon in it, on its east wall (except the bathrooms and the laundry room), but we do not have a traditional icon corner. I have been very adamant about my icons, which Tina has accepted with good grace. Her father is a Baptist preacher, and she has evolved very stringently Protestant views (Cromwellian, as I like to describe them) and so she was quite unnerved by icons initially.
