This is the short time lapse version of one of the featured paintings in Christmas Show 2021 (the full 45 minute variety show with painting, singing and dancing is available on this site, YouTube, and BitChute). This nativity scene is larger than the one I’ve done in the past, as this one includes more than the central figures of Joseph, Mary, and baby Jesus. Added are the wise men, shepherds, animals (cow, donkey, sheep) and angel. The Christmas star is included in both paintings.
I hope that you are enjoying a peaceful time with your loved ones, as we reflect on what Christmas means to us as individuals, and as we participate in our family traditions. Speaking of traditions, old and new: Tonight was the last surprise meal for our Secret Santa game. I said yesterday that I’d talk with you about that, so here it is: our youngest daughter made chicken gnocchi, and it was DELICIOUS!
We had a wonderful Secret Santa exchange this year and now we have gourmet leftovers to help us through the busy day tomorrow. I hope our family has inspired you to give this idea a try sometime. The week leading up to Christmas is a good time for families to share the cooking and try new special dishes.
Tomorrow is already Christmas Eve! I wish all of you peace, love, and joy. God bless you and your families.

“This is the beautiful and elegant state flower of Georgia. It is an Asian plant that does well in tropical climates. I love the look of this flower so much, I designed my oil painting of it for a pretty fashion scarf that I wear to church (it is also for sale through my website).
As I said earlier, I look forward to one day adding this special plant to my garden. I think it would work well in front of a fence row. I’ll do more research on this plant before making a commitment to it. People claim it’s quite a sprawler!”
This art is available as a fashion scarf – for sale on this page (scroll down).
Note: The scarf shown in the product video is Poly Chiffon, 10″ x 45″. (Silk is no longer available due to the steep rise in cost).
