"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord" (Luke 2:11)
As series of paintings placing the traditional nativity scene in a war zone.
I painted these over the four weeks of advent, as I prayed for an end to the war in Israel Gaza.
I share these paintings, in sadness for the loss of life in the Holy Land but also in hope as we hear the good news:
"Unto us a child is born,
to us a son is given;...
and his name shall be called
Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6–7)
May peace be with us all
