    Thank you for the latest on the icon painting. It’s a fascinating subject. Makes me want to photograph people and put halos over their head somehow. “It’s not about me.” I wonder. In someways it’s all about us as well as everything else, dare I say it. It’s interesting how it’s so true, we all recognize the experience but hesitate on the words.

    Oh well…Thanks again. Icons really do seem something special.
    So, I’m glad to see them brought to light by you and John.

    Thank you Alex and John for introducing me to Nancy. I am inspired by not only her work but her words. (I must say that I am intimidated by the organization of materials, fibers.) I am going to get in touch with her soon as I am giving myself a vacation in mid October. Blessings on you,

    I think Nancy is actually an artist of organization. As well as her art works, her workshop, her tools and equipment are works of art themselves. I know you will love her, and love icon painting.

    I was fascinated, too, by Nancy’s awareness of something that inspires her work that is not “about her.” I think icon painting really highlights that phenomenon. Thanks for writing!

    Very nice. I enjoyed getting to see a little about her materials and technical process, along with the beautiful, finished icons themselves. Her devotion is inspiring.
