The Magnificat, Digitally Illumined

Today, I spent an inordinate chunk of time roughing out my digital illumination of the Magnificat. The version above isn’t the final version, but it gives the idea. Next, I will play with the text to make it look a little less stiff.

Good work! Thanks be to God!

Mary, the mother of God, has been very much with me this advent season. I’ve tried to get excited about the Christ child, I’ve waited to see the king breaking forth into the world with all humility, I say I’m excited about the incarnation.
