We are deeply grateful for the opportunities to continue learning the technical and theological aspects of the writing of the icon. This past April 24–29, 2017 we experienced again, the luxury of uninterrupted prayer and practice taught by Master Iconographers Vladislav Andrejev and his son, Dmitri Andreyev. We learned the historical significance of Moses and the Unburnt Bush as we began each morning with prayer then onto learning! The lectures given by Vladislav and translated by Dmitri are invaluable tools to understanding not only the process but the aspiration to enter into the into a deeper spiritual connection to our work within the writing of the icon.
Six days of intense work does not exhaust the emotional energy put into the icon, one only longs for more to continue learning and practicing basic skills learned during the week. Following the minuscule dots of pigment submerged in emulsion to place them into the proper area takes patience and daily practice!
