Here are Joseph, Mary and Jesus in Bethlehem right after the birth. I wanted the baby to look like a baby — the kind you would want to hold and cuddle. I wanted to show the sacred Son of God with sweetness in his eyes. Mary needed to look like a mother who is excited with her new little son. The picture needed to look like how real people would look, not like the weird paintings from the Renaissance that showed little Jesus with a head too small, holding a cross. Yes, it’s May, but Merry Christmas.
