The creche at the Cathedral of St. Paul



This is the creche I worked on at the Cathedral - the paintings I did are at the sides, the views through the back windows, and the angels in the loft.  They are difficult to see in the photo - as it should be - they are intended simply as backgrounds.  The shinny rectangular object above Our Lady is a lantern.

  6. Sorry to say I will not be able to see it 'in person'.
    The paintings remind me of Giotto or Fra Angelico...the lines are so simple and the colors are so vivid.
    Beautiful!
