The Nativity Backgrounds



I finished the panels last Friday - there are two sets to choose from - we'll see tomorrow how they fit and if they are suitable for framing by the stable windows. Visit Up Your Street to see the collection, here and here. (The photography is bad - flash back and all - but you get the idea.)

  7. Terry,
    Scrim and grapevines nothwithstanding, the panels put the scene in context: watchfires, lone shepherd on the winding path, a starry night, signs of life throughout the city, tended flocks, a cave? and interesting blues. The blinking lights around the Nativity Scene cast a reflection that resembled a fast heart pulse at the neck of the figure of Mary. There was a crowd before and after Mass last night. Thank you!

  8. J.E. - Thanks very much for that news. I was becoming rather depressed over the whole setting - it is good to know it all works. I can't bring myself to revisit it. Yes - there is the hint of a cave in two of the panels.
