1325 - Nativity 2 - XI

Inclement weather has cancelled a couple of opportunities for me to work on my icon.  This week, I finally braved snow and ice to lay down a little more paint.  I've gotten closer to finishing the robes and added some colour to the animals. 

Notice my watch and wedding ring in the box at the top.  You don't want to wear jewelry when you paint, since the metal will scratch your work.  I've already patched a couple of small scratches in this icon.
