Welcome graphic

Iconography  is more than a hobby for me. It's a "Window to Heaven" and an expression of my spiritual life which I can share with others. In this album, I've assembled photos of some of the icons I have ""written" (i.e. painted) during the last four years.

In the past I dabbled with  some hobby art  projects for fun.  Then four years ago a  friend invited me to attend a six  day icon painting workshop presented by the Prosopon School of Iconography, and I "wrote",  i.e. painted,  an icon of the Archangel Michael .  The icon shown on the right was written by St. Andrei Rublev (c.1370-1430) and is the prototype for the icon I wrote.  Rublev  is known as the finest iconographer in all of Russia's history, and an inspiration for iconographers throughout the ages.
