"The guiding light"

Comments

Nice sentiment Angela, remembering the Nativity.

Thank you Jim, I wanted to express the Nativity as it was quite a special Christmas this year. Our family all gathered on Christmas morning and with the little ones present it inspired me to paint them a Nativity scene.

I painted this Nativity Scene yesterday. I made cardboard figurines and cut-outs then painted each form to print on the canvas board.
