Animals from all over the world, followed the Christmas star, their prayers and wishes had been answered. Even as far as Australia, possums, koalas, wombats, kangaroos and echidnas came bearing gifts for the new born baby Jesus. They had heard of his birth, divinity, love and light. His story would show others the way, and teach us of Gods love and how to live by his teachings, and bring Peace to the world.
This is a pencil drawing, which would make a nice Christmas Card, and a little story of Christmas with an Australian flavour.


jesus, christmas, love, light, animals, australian, wishes, hope, faith, truth

This is done in acrylic paint on canvas, and it reminds us to relax and enjoy life, to take time out and daydream.
