For God So Loved the World

 The Art
I had a slight change of style with this one. I did the background in pencil. Occasionally I like to switch mediums, just to keep my hand in, so to speak. The birds, which do look like small parrots, are Crossbills ( and no prizes for guessing how they got their name) It's difficult to capture the metallic sheen to their plumage which seems to shimmer in sunlight. Their beaks are specially adapted to picking out seeds from pine cones.

The Scripture
Light is everything to an artist. Ask Turner! To a Christian the Light is everything!
