Yesterday a local artist called to ask if I would participate in her annual "Nativity" art show. She had ready answers to my questions, convinced me it would cost little and other well respected artists that I personally knew were also participating. She recommended I look to the dictionary for "nativity" in search of inspiration. I did so but kept coming back to the actual birth process.
Above is the sketch I made for this painting which will be relatively small (8" x 6"). I cut and assembled a mini stretcher, cut a piece of organic cotton/hemp canvas and tomorrow I will gesso and begin.
