I made this drawing for my Christmas card. I wanted Mary to appear young; I’m told she was. I wanted the image to have a somewhat contemporary, less traditional look but still have the feel of the historical setting. You’ll have to judge whether or not I was successful.
To my friends who are not Christian or are not religious, let this be an image representing love and the hope for the future.
