For the last four or five years, I've been asked to provide the cover artwork for our church's Christmas Eve program. This year, I decided to paint a silhouette. Truth be told, it was getting down to the deadline and painting in just two colors is a lot faster than a full color painting!
So I drew a simple profile drawing of Mary holding the baby Jesus and painted it in silhouette.
Usually the church staff hands me some photos of ideas they would like for the program, but this year they said, "just do whatever you like." So there was freedom in color choice and in design. I kept thinking of the line in the song, "Mary Did You Know", by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene.© 1984"When you kiss your little baby, you kiss the face of God."
We are now two days into our Christmas break from school and another snow storm blew through this weekend. If it remains cold, the snow just might stay on the ground for a white Christmas.
Wishing you a Wonderful Christmas with family and friends. May your time together be a Blessed time of celebration. From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!
