I have come to think that iconography is the most beautiful form of art, or at least certainly more beautiful than anything I have made before. It attains visual beauty that leads to divine truth so much so that miracles occur through them. How can it be that this Divine Presence can so come to this humble creation of man? It seems that Iconography should be the final end of all my art, but there is still a small part of me that wishes to do other art, to continue oil painting. I think for some reason I will, but what can I paint? What could possibly approach iconography?

Isaac’s younger brother, Ander, recently started an apprenticeship with an iconographer in Greenville, SC. You could say he’s picking up where Isaac left off.
