This past Sunday marked the beginning of the Season of Advent for the Catholic Church, a time for reflective preparation for the celebration of the coming of the Savior Jesus Christ. Gradually, while we prepare spiritually, the decorations start to pop up everywhere until most walls and halls are decked with boughs of holly by December 25. I painted three of these small panels for a touch of that same spirit in someone’s home.
