Since I have decided to put together a coloring book for my kids, I am drawing the cartoon of whatever icons go along with our weekly religion lessons. I then scan it, clean it up a little and print one for each child including the two year old. I truly believe that these holy images are a large part of helping the children to understand our faith.
I need to perhaps be more patient and spend more time getting it to look more graceful and precise. I pushed myself to draw two this week amidst my other duties and it would have been better to slow down. I do not foresee any large icon painting sessions any time soon.
Here are this week's icon. I could not convince the kids to color the last two because I did not set aside appropriate time for them to work on it. But we talked about them.
