About a year ago I promised one of my pen friends from deviantART to draw a Christmas postcard and have it uploaded in my gallery. Having lost my account there due to corrupted administration, I have found much better place to share works.

The design of this postcard is based on one of those available in our post offices, including:
- Mary the Mother of Lord;
- The Holy Infant Jesus Christ;
- Saint Joseph the husband of Mary http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Joseph
- the sheep in bottom left part of the postcard has to represent the Lamb of God http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamb_of_God

I would like to thank my pen friend fmr0 for his ground and grass textures, which helped me in completing this postcard.

alitta2Really great postcard! I especially like the pose of Mary and Joseph as they look to the sky to thank God that they finally could have a child.

Merry Christmas to you as well in advance ;)

Beautiful sky;  nice use of the gradients and patterns. :-)

Merry Christmas to you   :-)

TeeJay87There's only one part I'm unsure about - if the stable, where Our Lord was born, had walls made of sandstone crowned with arches like I depicted.

Same to you in advance. ;)

SaltwaterThe arch is great for the composition and design.

Christmas cards offer a message of hope and joy.
(and you did this very well)  :D

For the rest, let's call it artistic license ;-)

Reality is not always very cheerful, they were fugitives....

TeeJay87I've tried to depict a landscape you can see in the Middle East beyond the coastline, which is mostly semi-arid climate http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semi-arid_climate
