Lovely, Dina. "Icon" is a perfect I word.
I've always loved the word "vespers" though — I remember having "sung vespers" at sunset, up on a big, big rock, when I was a child at camp.

Beautiful and love the composition. Is the icon on the right is what we call Mother of Perpetual Help?

Kim, I'm no expert, but I think this icon of Mary and son is called the Theotokos of Vladimir.
