Beautiful! I love how you chose not to show the stable as being a cave (which has no historical basis, and besides, if you owned a bunch of expensive cattle, would you keep them in a cave outside your own city?)
This is awesome. I've been trying to find a good nativity painting to use as my computer background; I'm going to use this one. It has the perfect balance between historical accuracy and spiritual meaning.
Wonderful, wonderful work. Just the layers of foreground (animals) and background (night sky) are beautifully done. And I'm very glad the shepherds are portrayed here, but not the wise men (as, Biblically, they were not there at Christ's birth). Bravo!
