    Love the contrast of light and dark here but what is St. Joseph doing?

    The fact that the artist was able to capture the effect of the candle through her fingers is amazing to me.

    Yes I like the high contrast style of painting.

    Some kind of carpentry. Drilling something I think to be exact.

    Yes the light thru the fingers is cool. And that is a he probably. Young Jesus I would think:)
