"First Family"

"First Family" was painted in 2005. I used molding paste to add more texture to the painting and my usual bright colors to portray the beginning of life in the first family. In this painting, like in my paintings "Mountains Praise the Glory of the Lord" and "Mountains Praise", the mountains are rising up in praise of God. There are times when water represents hard and difficult times, and at other times water represents a life giving force. In "First Family" the water represents the power which is in the possibility of new life.
