Story Behind the Art
I could probably paint a hundred painting of Mary and her baby. The relationship of a mother and a child is not easily explained in hundreds of words, but it comes immediately to our understanding with a picture.
This experience is universal and one of the greatest gifts God has given.
How great is God’s plan that allows mere mortals to bring His children into the world, care for them, and help them make their way back to Him. How amazing that he trusts us when so much is at stake. How much more amazing and harder to comprehend is the experience of Mary, the mother of Jesus. We worry about our own responsibilities as parents. How much more was at stake to be a parent to the Son of God
