The Art of Icon Writing

There was a delightful segment about Icon writing from Oregon Public Broadcasting that has been floating around the internet recently. From the website blurb:

"Heather MacKean is an iconographer who uses traditional painting techniques to create modern masterpieces. This former nun makes her own glue from rabbit skins and tempera from eggs, keeping with century old traditions."

The clip is well worth watching and can be viewed by clicking here.
