Del Mar Rector’s paintings grace national publication

Paige Blair, the rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, is  known around the church campus for her paintings (technically called “writings”) of religious icons. But now, her icons — a precise but meditative method of portraying religious images — are getting a much wider audience. During 2014, Blair’s icons will be featured on all four covers of Forward Day by Day,  a quarterly publication of daily meditations, which has been published by the Episcopal Church since 1935 (the first cover is pictured above).

Blair is also enthusiastic about helping others pursue this unique and creative form of prayer and has taught many icon workshops in Maine and Florida. For the past two summers, Blair has led a week-long workshop on iconography at St. Peter”s for anyone who is interested, and plans to hold another workshop in August 2014.
