Away in a Manger

Over at Inchy by Inch challenge blog this weeks theme and final for the year is Christmas Carol.
I decided to paint my inchie, I was in a miniature painting mood today and I decided to paint this to reflect one of my favourite Christmas carols, Away in a Manger.
Space was small do I didn't do a lot of detail but as one of my favourite artist, Jerry Yarnell would say, you create a suggestion, so here I created a manger with a baby Jesus wrapped in swaddling clothes. and the Star of David shining brightly as my suggestion. :)
Remember the true meaning of Christmas, it really didn't start with good deals at Walmart or Best Buy but rather a tiny babe in a manger a gift to all of us from God.

I would like to thank Fiona the hostess over at Inchy by Inch for all the work that she does to run this fun blog challenge and to all the girls I have met over there that share the same art interests as I do.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas.
