Road To Grace - Christmas Nativity Print 2023

Illustrated Christmas Nativitiy Scene By Adam Trest

In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.” - Luke 2:8-14

Sometimes I see a project in my mind so clearly, it’s just a matter of putting it down on paper.

This was one of those.

I’ve sketched these sheep and lilies and angels so many times in the edges of sketchbooks and on my whiteboard.

So many times that I was able to approach this piece with a level of confidence that I don’t often have (especially when working with ink).

This print is intentionally striking and graphic, especially compared to last year's Christmas print

This print is full of details. The animals, the skyline, the hay, the flowers - they all are part of the bigger story of God the Father's great love for people. No detail is too small for God. 

I love the story. 

It's the story. The greatest story ever told.

I hope when you see this print, you try to picture yourself there - in the stable with the Savior or in the field with the shepherds as the chorus of angles filled the sky. 

Could you even imagine what it was like?

The awe...

The surprise...

The fear...

The way the shepherds must have wondered, why the Creator God was chose to share the news of the Savior's birth with them before anyone else...
