My Christmas present from my wife and children was a gorgeous print of this painting by William Bouguereau.  I am a huge Bouguereau fan and absolutely love it.  You'll notice a couple others in the left column.

“Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel, ” which means “God is with us.” (Mathew 1:23)

"And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
(Luke 2:13-14)

Beautiful. Really.

By the way I am happy to see the return of your blue-grey background. The red was really jarring.

Thanks Rick. Bouguereau was genius -- just so talented.

The red was just for Christmas. Maybe should have gone with forest green.
