God help me

 I painted baby Jesus on a coconut.
I was feeling as though I missed my usual painting of the Madonna and child that I would hang over the fireplace. All my holiday ornaments and traditional seasonal decor are in storage up north. These nuts were at rest on a plant stand before I "saw" the images come through. Our patio is decked with beads, lights and coconuts.

The third painted coconut is the "witness". There was always a witness to the paintings of Mary and Jesus- whether it's John the Baptist, Saint Anne, the patron of the church, a host of angels, or ourselves, you and me.
