Point of View: Joseph and Mary: The Journey


Joseph and Mary: The Journey. By Georgia Kibler, Grade 12, Covenant Day School, Matthews, N.C., a member of Christian Schools International.

Artist’s statement:

This piece is a reflection of the story of Joseph and Mary, specifically their journey to Bethlehem. I decided to incorporate the painting into their profiles. Both Mary and Joseph demonstrate bravery in how they trusted God’s plan even though it didn’t make sense at the time. I wanted to share their story by taking a common painting method (portraits) but painting their story inside.
