The Nativity, pen and ink, watercolor, Marcia Carole

I am working on a series of watercolor and mehndi Christmas cards. I jumped right in with creating the nativity scene. Some of the piece developed around the flow of the watercolor. I used lots of flowering lotus blossoms representing the flowering of God's plan to recuse us through Jesus. I tried to also portray a cave, the barn of sorts, for the setting, and the unusual star assigned to mark the spot where the savior arrived.

My eyes are slowly healing from a very aggressive form of pink eye I picked up in Cambodia. I am back in the studio!
