Gorgous drawing,dear Carole! Very interesting to see the process and volution of Your wips. I like this scene with Joseph and Mary,pregnant,very much.Joseph putting his hand tenderly arround the unborn baby,this is very touching and emotional,we are not used to see this "point of view"of the "holy family",and I really adore it!
Thank you so much Flori! Very true. I have not seen too many works of Joseph and Mary, before she gives birth. My friend Kat did an amazing piece similar to this one last year that is simply breathtaking just a really beautiful piece [link]
When doing this piece, I tried to imagine everything that was going on through their minds, before the birth. I am sure each had worries, but to be blessed with such a gift of being the parents and witnessing the birth of the Messiah - no greater gift.
...Oh yes,I saw the link,the drawing of Your friend is just as beautiful as Your's One can see,that You put all Your and imagining what They must have been going through,really shows in very emotional way in Your work,my Dearest
