Christmas Painting # 3

The Local  artists show was before Christmas that year, so I also displayed 3 Christmas paintings.  These were also part of a Christmas exhibit at CBC.  This weekend I will post those 3 paintings and Sunday I'll show you the one that won an award.  This is my third favorite.  The angels are swirling up form Bethlehem announcing Christ's birth.  In the corner there are some shepherds witnessing the glorious display.  I called this painting, "Be Not Aftraid."  I have no idea what an angel really looks like, but every time a human meets one in the Bible, the first thing they always say is "be not afraid".  .  .  so they must be awesome creatures to behold.
