Artist's Description

12.15.2015

A local church asked me to help with a giant painting for their Christmas celebration. I did not have the time to complete something of that magnitude but it got me thinking about ideas. I have always liked Remington’s nocturne paintings of cowboys around the campfire so I decided to use some of his paintings as inspiration and show the Shepherd’s around a campfire when the angel came to visit them. I didn’t want to paint a cheesy angel so I decided to only show part of the angel and I imagined the heavenly host as looking like the Aurora Borealis. So I also used images of the Aurora Borealis as inspiration for the sky. I have been learning a lot about stars lately and have always enjoyed looking at them, so the star part of it was also intriguing to me. So in the end, I combined all of these ideas to do this painting of the night those good ole average Joe’s- the Shepherd’s, stepped foot into the amazing event God had always planned for them to witness. They were made so very special that night by hearing that their savior had arrived. How beautiful and life changing it must have been!
