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. Click on image to enlarge. I […]
I rarely repeat any art that I do. This is an exception. Last year about this time I did an Advent illustration for my church. Just to be different I did it in a mosaic/stained glass technique. I immediately decided I would do a different, more realistic version. I used it for my 2016 Christmas […]
Here are a couple of Christmas drawings from the past, each celebrating the joy of becoming a new parent. Joseph and Baby Jesus: December, 2014 Mary and Baby Jesus: December, 2012

While visiting a couple of my grandkids for Christmas they made requests for drawings. Since it was Christmas they both wanted Santa cartoons. One wanted Santa wearing a tutu. The other wanted a zombie Santa. One grandkid is a 5 year old girl; the other, an 8 year old boy. I’ll let you figure out […]
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 […]
