“She brought forth her first born son and wrapped him in swaddling clothes.” Luke 2:7.

This piece is a celebration of the birth of Christ. It is painted like an old illuminated manuscript with gold leafing, lettering, and trompe l’oeil effect (on the outside doors) using traditional gouche techniques. I hope you enjoy every minute of this painting.

There is a bundle option to purchase the packet and the beautiful wooden tryptych.  The tryptych stands 18 1/2" high and is 11 1/2" wide with doors closed.  When open the piece measures 19 1/2" wide.  There is a drawer that opens below the drawers.
