Holy Windows into Heaven

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.

I am home on a break, and will answer more fully when I have more time. I will solicit some book titles from my teacher for you. I am going to post soon on theology of icons, and some basics. This may not be til next week, though, because this icon is very difficult and very detailed, and will take up most of this week. Stay tuned!!

add me to your growing list of "i can't wait to find out what this is all about." it has to be a calling because i've never felt compelled toward writing icons.

i think.

unless i have and because i have no idea what it means, i haven't responded in kind...
