"How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings." -Psalms 36:7
This was a blessed little miracle for me. I actually had a different painting planned, a full-length image of the Savior and several children. But after a careful review of my reference, I found a close-up that seemed to capture everything I wanted to say. The tender look of admiration in the child’s eyes—I think it captures the feelings we all want to have: close, comforted, and reassured of His protection and love.
