Eleousa 1

Eleousa (ελεουσα) means: Mother of Tenderness.

This is the first icon I painted and I gave it to my sister.

My icon painting teacher is a fourth generation icon-writer from Bulgaria. In the Holy Saint Antonius Abt church in my town the priest is also an icon painter and they do a Byzantinian service around Orthodox Eastern every year.

In that service all the icons are blessed. So I went there a few times with the people who were getting my icons, like my mother and a friend or a buyer.

This icon was blessed at Orthodox Eastern.
