Today I begin my 4th Icon Workshop. This week I will be writing the icon of the Annunciation. Today will will open with a prayer and a blessing of our hands. We will aske St. Gabriel and the Theotokos to bless our endeavors and allow us to write a beautiful icon. I will be giving periodic updates on my progress and spiritual reflection that I always receive while writing icons. Maybe if I can figure out the picture thing on blogs, I'll post a picture of it after it is written, named and blessed. There is a process of praying and fasting during the writing of icons, and I will try to make this as enriching of a spritiual experience as Our Good Lord will allow.
