Rejoice! Art Prints: The Nativity

$19.99
A reflection from the artist:
In this painting, Mary is resting on Joseph and the pile of hay that Joseph has gathered together for them. Mary holds the newborn Jesus, who illuminates her face with joy and love. The scene is juxtaposed with the cool-colored background of night.

When my children were born, my favorite moments were when the hospital room was quiet with no one else around but my wife, our newborn child, and myself. No extended family or nurses, only the three of us, getting to know each other—a new family.

That is the feeling I wanted to convey in this painting. Here we see only the Holy Family. No shepherds, animals, magi, or angels. It’s just Mary, Joseph, and the infant, Jesus.

The scene is a silent and holy night of family love and heavenly peace.
