Icons and Opportunities

As artists, we are constantly influenced by what we see and experience.  These images become subconscious prompts for future work, and can sometimes be inspiration for immediate expression.   In all cases, we are gifted with a variety of opportunities on a daily basis.

During my recent long weekend at Valley Ridge Art Studio in Wisconsin, a group of us visited a monastic community that produces beautiful hand painted orthodox icons.   Afterward, back in the studio, this was the journal page I made, influenced by the imagery of the icons.
