'Labor Of Love' Print
A detailed print of my original painting titled 'Labor Of Love.
My depiction of the birth of Christ shows Mary accompanied by her midwives and her faithful husband as she begins labor. There is so much I could say about this piece, but I will start with this. While the birth of Christ was the greatest miracle to ever happen, I imagine that this time was also full of a lot of very human emotions for Mary and Joseph. I imagine that they felt exhaustion, anxiety, stress, and fear, not to mention the intense physical pain Mary was about to endure to bring the Savior into the world. I imagine that they felt lonely after being turned away from so many places, and that they found solace in the star that shined down on them. I imagine that there were women in the town who came to help. I pictured an older midwife and her younger apprentice befriending Mary and coaching her through this immensely difficult task. I picture Joseph by her side, wiping her face, holding her, and encouraging her. I picture Mary, full of grace and faith, without who we would not have our Savior.
In this collection, I decided to explore the more human side of the nativity story, the quiet moments that we have all imagined but don’t see depicted so much. I imagine that these moments were so incredibly sacred.
I use a beautiful, heavy-weight, acid-free paper for my prints. Prints come unframed and signed by the artist. All of my prints are border-less.
Each print is placed in a clear plastic sleeve to protect from moisture while traveling to you, and mailed in a rigid envelope.

Canvas prints are made lovingly by hand in the United States, and are shipped directly from my supplier to you. Reflective gold is NOT able to be added to the canvases due to the way they are made and the protective coating used on them. The gold colors in canvases will be a flat gold color as shown in the listing images.
Unframed Canvases have a wrapped image and a 1.5" edge. They have a sawtooth hanger in the back for easy installation.
Framed canvas prints come in either a white, black, or gold floater frame. Floater frames create the illusion that the artwork is floating inside of it. They elevate the artwork and the perfect finishing touch. Framed canvases have a 1.5" edge and come with a hanging wire in the back for easy installation.
Canvases are printed on thick archival grade, poly-cotton canvas. The canvas is pH neutral, acid-free, and will not yellow over time.
Canvases are perfect for gifting!
