The Reason

Folded book with manger scene

Every year I create an artwork to use for our family Christmas cards.  This is a 15 year tradition, and through 2015 it was always a watercolor painting.  Using a book for our card seemed the logical choice now that my artwork has taken a different direction.

I also wanted to create a Nativity for this card, which was definitely challenging.  I also tried something new, enhancing the 3-D effect with different parts of the design being folded at different depths to give an added dimension.

The Reason was created using the book Souled Out, Reclaiming Faith and Politics after the Religious Right.  It happened to be on hand, a book that was picked up at a thrift store months ago.  It seemed fitting to use this book as a reminder of “The reason for the season.”
