1048 - Nativity IX

This last pass on my Nativity icon seems to have been almost completely dominated by mistakes and miscues.  I've been trying to get the rock floor to look decent, but now I will have to paint over most of it and re-do what I have done to it. 

The very thing about iconography is that it's easy to look at, difficult to understand, and even harder to paint, especially if you are in a hurry.
