Wisemen Watercolor Painting

This past year I was fortunate, again, to be contacted by Glenmary Home Missioners to paint their Christmas and Easter artwork for their annual appeals.  I so love working with Glenmary, as it takes my love and interest in the scriptures and my love of painting and pairs it with their keen eyes to produce really nice pieces.

We start working on their Christmas artwork in July and their Easter artwork in December, so it’s pretty wacky to be thinking about the holidays so far removed from when they fall in the year.  I’ll be showing you Easter’s artwork (which is finished) closer to Easter — let’s just say it was a challenge for me this year — but here’s the final image for their 2011 Christmas appeal: the Wisemen approaching Bethlehem.
