The image of Mary has mutated many times throughout centuries of iconography. From the mother of creation Diva, to a Mother of God gazing into the unknown, to a weeping, anguished mother of Jesus she has changed as our society changes. The Renaissance painters in the 16th century changed her image into a more human mother, one of pain or of joy. Mary’s identity has given rise to many doctrinal wars, decrees and debates but her image is more than cult, idol, mystery or divine. She is a fountain of motherhood image, triggering great reflection and contemplation.

Recent Workshop in St Peters Lewes Delaware we painted the Samaritan at the Well Icon.
Icons are used in individual prayer and during retreats. Narrative icons are especially suited to stimulate the imagination, to open doorways to mystical and spiritual realities. With time and careful attention, icons can reveal several layers of meaning and distort the limits of time and space. To enhance the interior dialogue during a workshop it was easy to ask questions like, who is this woman? How was her life changed after conversing with Christ? did she return to the city? Why did she not get painted with a Halo?
