There were sheepherders camping in the neighborhood...

watercolor and ink

While shepherds watched
their flocks by night
All seated on the ground
The angel of the Lord came down,
and glory shone around

"Fear not!" said he for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds
"Glad tiding of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind..."

~Andrew Peterson, Behold the Lamb of God

Merry Christmas!

  5. First, I love it! The colors, composition, the figures, are so cool! Also, for some reason I heard the lines in the voice of Linus. LOL. I didn't actually watch Charlie Brown Christmas this year, but I think Linus does some similar lines, so that's what it sounded like to me. :) So glad to see you posting! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
