Welcome Holy Babe - Guest Heart Thursday

December First seems a wonderful day to put up my latest watercolor.  When I was a little girl, I wasn't so interested in Santa Claus.  Rather I loved the beautiful and romantic story of a young girl, visited by an angel, given the gift of a Holy Child.

In my imagination, I watched Joseph as he tenderly cared for Mary--I loved how the angels protected them.  I wished I could have been with the Shepherds who were visited by a multitude of the heavenly hosts, praising God and the birth of His Son.

I was in awe of the great Kings who sought the Babe from faraway lands.  I wondered about His star and  knew if I had been born then, I too, would have followed it to where He lay.

There are hearts in this painting--can you find them all?

Welcome Holy Babe!

Note:  This painting was inspired by the art and style of Alphonse Mucha.

Fabulous painting, I'm not that good at seeing hearts yet though. They have to be obvious for me to see them.

Oh sissie - it's beautiful! I'm in agreement with Dani - the vivid red color is absolutely wonderful!
