Happy December first!  Advent began last Sunday, so I have decided to share proofs of the prints I created for this season of 'expectant waiting.'  These images were created for the four Sundays of Advent and are based on scripture readings for each of those Sundays.  I enjoy Advent with the darkening days and the anticipation and preparation that consumes them. 


  1. These are beautiful Betsy. Are they only for the church?

    psst...It's me, Amy, your sister.

  2. thanks sister! my boss, the pastor, saw an annunciation image a did a few years ago and asked if i'd be interested in doing something for the church this year. it turned out to be a win/win situation...a fun project for me and some unique imagery for the church to use. i do plan to print an edition but probably after the holidays. xo

  3. Whoa, these are gorgeous. I actually love advent more than Christmas. There's something so true and so poignant about waiting and hoping and expecting. I'm in line for a set after Amy, OK? Happy advent, Betsy.

  4. Annie, I feel the same way about advent! And, thanks so much for your kind words about my prints. I'm hoping to print an edition later this month. Presently I am pondering paper choices...something warm and not starkly bright. hmmm. Wishing you a Happy Advent too!

    p.s. it might not really be amy. could be an imposter. to be safe, ship the prints to me.
