Visible to anyone in the world

Holy family Mary Joseph jesus and shepherds

Artist Jon Clayton (mouth painter)

Why do I like this christmas card?

First of all I like the beautiful bright gold colours used in the painting.

Secondly the artist was painting this picture using his mouth and paint brush as he had a disability.

Thirdly it showing the poverty into which Jesus was born in a humble stable. No luxurious palace, even though he was of royal blood. It made me think of many families who would also be having a frugal christmas this year!
