Nativity with Angels

A Christmas drawing of Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus with angels. 

I thought of this scene on Christmas Eve as we sang O Little Town of Bethlehem.  "For Christ is born of Mary, and gathered all above, while mortals sleep, the angels keep their watch of wondering love."  

Unfortunately, my scan lost some of the subtle pinks and lavenders in the angel wings and robes.

Wavy Lines and Circles

It's been awhile since I've drawn, so today is a simple doodle that was fun to play with.  A pair of wavy lines with circles in gray, green, blue, and yellow.  I colored over some with a lighter marker for the uneven effect.

Advent Calendar 2013 - Taking a Break This Year

I've been drawing annual Advent Calendars for the past five years.  Loved doing it.  This year though, I'm taking a break.   
Wishing everyone an Advent season filled with hope and joy!
