Image of my New Year's Day

First shiny new day of the year 2015, bright promise gift wrappings of the new year are still surrounding the day.
I am contemplating this image: Jesus Christ Pantocrator (Detail from deesis mosaic) from Hagia Sophia  for two reasons; I received a copy as icon for a Christmas gift from my family, and I am painting today on the last of the Old Testament Vigil paintings for my church. I need a Christ face reference to work from as I finish this part of the canvas.

Searching to express the good the true and the beautiful.
