DEACON MARK DUKES: John Coltrane icons by Saint John Coltrane Orthodox Church San Francisco California icon painter

Mark Dukes is a very talented Orthodox Christian icon painter,  an ordained Orthodox Deacon and the official icon painter at the Saint John Coltrane Orthodox Church in San Francisco, California.

He has painted a number of icons of the late great Afro-American jazz musician, whose memory is revered at that particular congregation as a saint.

A link to the website of Deacon Mark Dukes is provided in the comments section below, and in the CCC BLOGROLL to the right.

I owe Deacon Dukes an apology for posting one of his Saint John Coltrane icons here and at LA ROSA without proper attribution.

I hope that he will forgive my enthusiasm for his work, which I discovered reproduced in colour in the National Post newspaper some time ago…
