It was a delight to work with ALL of you! I am already looking forward to coming back together for icon class in 2017! May your work continue in the blessings of Truth~
“To make an icon, one must first come to a dispassionateness, a purity, so that the Saint can guide every stroke of the painting. It is all to be pure prayer. One cannot paint a Saint except if he live the same kind of life as the Saint. There needs to be technique, method, but neither too much nor too little. Technique can never produce a true icon.” Chapter 7, from The Monk’s of Mount Athos- A Western Monk’s Extraordinary Spiritual Journey on Eastern Ground.
