Sleepers Awake!

This started out as an illustration for a concert. Our church choir performed Bach’s Cantata 140 and a few other selections at the Dallas Museum of Biblical Arts. I decided to make it my annual Christmas card (even though it’s really about Advent). The inspiration comes from Matthew 25.

I hope everyone has a merry Christmas and God blesses you throughout 2018!

My Christmas card for 2015. I decided to go for a more whimsical approach. All in fun.

Joseph and Baby Jesus

This drawing was done for my 2014 Christmas card. I wanted to recognize Joseph. I wanted to show a young man, proud to be a father and delighted in his son.

Joseph, son of David, what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. He will save his people from their sins.

Joseph and Baby Jesus

I wanted to complement the earlier drawing I had done of Mary and baby Jesus:(

A Child Is Born

This is the last Christmas card in the set and is most people’s favorite; probably because they’ve all witnessed the humorous chaos of trying to put on a youth Christmas program. Outside on the top; inside on the bottom.

I hope you have enjoyed this tour of Christmas cards. Regardless of your faiths and beliefs, I wish this Christmas Day brings you joy. And again, thanks to David Hopson and his artistic skills for putting these together.

And Lo, The Star

The structure is the outside of my church. Do you recognize the bells from a previous card? Beside our church is a pathway enveloped by rows of live oak trees. We like to call that “Oak Alley.” I represented that within the silhouette of the sanctuary, then added the nativity scene. David Hopson added the star.

Christmas Greetings 2010

I’m wishing all of you a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year.

That’s me at the front. I suppose I should have a red nose. I’m followed by my granddaughters, grandsons, my daughter and son-in-law and, my son and daughter-in-law and finally, some chubby guy in a red suit.
