The Three Kings Approaching Bethlehem

August 14, 2010: The week's theme for Illustration Friday is "star gazing," which seems just right for this drawing from last December.

In the Christmas story, the Three Kings (or three magi, wise men) followed the star to Bethlehem.
"....the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was." (Matthew 2:9)
In my drawing, they are nearing the end of their journey.
