Icon painters potentially write spiritual truth which can come through reason as revelations or through logic which analyzes and sees patterns. Our intellect is essentially the innermost aspect of the heart and becomes the eye to the heart/soul. Part of us knows God as we paint and the inner essences of things in an unmediated way. Icon images come as living waters and flow into shape and form. I am curious, especially about Women Iconographers, how women interpret old image and what we are beginning to say as contemporary icon painters.
I invite iconographers to post their image and comments together. Remember, the human family is created by “God”, let us give respect for everyone’s efforts and refrain from negative criticism. Peaceful Painting
