The original idea for this artwork was inspired by the story of Jesus, Mary and Joseph fleeing to Egypt and was used as a holding slide for the church service. Joseph was warned in a dream that his family was in great peril and should immediately escape to Egypt to avoid the wrath of King Herod.
I quickly pulled together this abstract night scene in Photoshop and pulled in a previous illustration of a bird in flight that I have used before in a logo design.
I actually think the background has some potential and could be developed into an abstract painting. I particularly like the square moon.
