Painting icons is a prayer. By concentrating on the Divine we create a connection which enables us to have spiritual experiences. In earlier times, only monks were allowed to paint icons. Their painting was done as a meditation and prayer. In current times, icons have been rediscovered as an artistic form. Icon painting follows fixed rules regarding form and drawing. However, the colours can be different and more individual.
