First Christmas
A Story in Pictures

This series of paintings was based on the song First Christmas by Canadian folk musician Stan Rogers. It's a short tale that follows the lives of three people who, for different reasons, find themselves alone on Christmas.

If you're not familiar with Stan's music, I suggest you head over to You won't be disappointed!

Much thanks to my wife (and favorite business partner) Serafina Dwyer for helping with the cover. I love you lots!
