I was invited to paint during the Christmas services at my church. I began the painting at home and continued throughout the rehearsals and actual services. Unfortunately, the painting was not complete until March!
The name of the painting was inspired by the song, Mary Did You Know by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene. A couple in my church sang the song at the Christmas services and rehearsals. It was so beautiful and so fitting for this painting. The wonder Mary must have felt having just given birth and beholding her new, little baby Jesus.
