  1. I love your icons! You are truly gifted. BTW…one “writes” an icon, because each one is a “story” in itself.
    my project prayer:
    “High and Loving Creator, guide my mind, my heart, my eyes, and my hands as I commence this (item). Keep my focus on Thee and on (story being told), that my poor efforts may be a candle to help us come to Thee. Thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory; forever & ever, unto ages of ages. Ameinn.”

    1. Thank you for your kind comments.
      I am aware that in Orthodoxy the more usual term to use is ‘write’, but I am not Orthodox nor pretending to be, so I use ‘paint.’ There is a bit of writing right at the end, but that comes after a whole lot of using paint brushes and paint (and indeed is done using paint brushes and paint). The prayer is lovely. 🙂

    2. You are correct in saying that for an Orthodox iconographer the more usual term is ‘write’, but I am not Orthodox, and don’t have any wish to create Orthodox work; mine is Anglican, and because of that I use acrylic on canvas or board, and I paint. 🙂

  2. I would love to see what you would illuminate of these:
    Apostle Aristobulus of Britannia
    Kateri Tekakwitha
    Peter the Aleute, Martyr
    Herman of Alaska
    John Maximovitch the shoeless of Shanghai & San Francisco
    Seraphim of Sarov
    The Imperial Passion-Bearers (Nicholas, Alexandra, and their children)
    Coemgen (Kevin)
    Daibhidh of Wales
    May the All-Holy bless and guide thine heart & hands every day. +++ Ameinn.

    1. Thank you. 🙂
      Kateri and Dewi Sant I have, but not the others. I have a lot of icons that have not made it to this website yet; I really must add them to it. 🙂 There are some others on Instagram at cathyafy, including more recent work.
