The Washing
Summer 2020

Dear reader—

Amid the instability of the last three months, it has been a time of especially meaningful work for the studio. In 2019 an icon of the Washing of the Disciples' Feet was commissioned by a patron in California. Such a large and complicated festival work is a significant undertaking, but there is also great joy in its creation.

It is with excitement that I share with you more about the finished icon. In spending the last months pondering and painting this icon, I've come to see the Washing as an important event in our Lord's life, especially regarding what's happening around the world today. In this newsletter, and on the studio's website, you'll find images, an article, and even a short video about different aspects of the icon.

I hope that this meditation on happiness is a blessing to you and yours. —Symeon

ALL ICON WORKSHOPS CANCELLED FOR 2020

It was a difficult decision, but both the Toronto and the Regina workshops have been cancelled this year. With so much uncertainty around the use of churches, travel, and groups, it seemed unwise to offer them. Please watch for more information as we begin to plan for 2021.
