OAJ: Drawings of Elena Murariu
« on: December 21, 2017, 11:25:40 AM »
Some beautiful drawings by Romanian iconographer Elena Murariu. They may be preparatory for icon painting but as Fr. Silouan notes, they are beautiful icons in their own right.

Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy
