An Icon is art, but more than art.

After spending a wonderful, but cold, Christmas in Jackson Hole, I am spending three weeks in our home in Arlington, Texas, where the afternoons are in the '60's. Even though technically we have been in our house for almost a year, actual days spent there have been few. 

My main goal this trip was to get into my studio and make it a place where I can work. Too much clutter still surrounds me, but it is so much better. I also got all of our framed things off the dining room floor and into the front bedroom. We can serve a proper meal. 

The icon on the table is The Virgin of the Sign. Yes, two unfinished icons are waiting for me back in Jackson so this one makes three. I will be back in Jackson next week ready to tackle a new and bigger project after finishing up the other three. Take care of yourselves and let me hear from you.
Conception. What a concept!

The unfinished Virgin of the Sign is trying to tell me something, but I am having a hard time sitting still and painting, much less listening.
