Now for something a little more religious

If you haven’t noticed yet, I have a pretty wide interest in the subjects I paint.

For the last several years, I’ve been painting religious illustrations for my family’s Christmas presents. This is last years. Maybe you know what the painting is about already?
I seem to always underestimate how long these paintings take and didn’t get around to the actual painting stage until after December started. Putting it off so late resulted in two very painting-intense weeks right before Christmas.
From initial planning to finished piece: about 40 or so hours. All done in Corel Painter.
