For God So Loved the World

 The Art
It does not get much more Christmas than this, does it? I really doing silhouette work and the detail that can be achieved. Look closely and you will see various little creatures. The birds are Crested Tits, which if you want to see them in Britain you will need to travel to Scotland.

The Scripture
The birth of Christ has been reduced to a seasonal excuse for over indulgence and greed and the original meaning lost. It is clear however, that God intended this event to be a joyous occasion. My art here reflects that sentiment. I don't personally hold that the winter solstice was the time of his birth, that was a pagan concept, but it is the event which is to be celebrated not the time.
