Iconography;windows to the soul
Icon Painting is not like landscape painting; instead the sacred images are created for reflection. Each time you pass by a byzantine style icon positioned in your home, you may find a minute to pause. There is the saint or mystic staring back at you, beckoning you to sit still and open your heart. Every day the message might be different; stern, comical, instructive or like a ruse calling you into relationship, for an instant. They are windows because they open us, they provoke us, they encourage us to look again at the life we are living. Perhaps you soul is yearning for a striking piece of artwork for the entrance way that will greet visitors. Perhaps you want to position a catholic saint strategically for quick reflection. Mary Jane Miller´s Icons are vividly memorable, unwavering in emotional connections and strike at a serene response.
