Defender Among Them
This painting hung in two exhibits and was auctioned off to raie money for an adoptive family.
I think three things inspired the conception of this painting. First, of course I was wanting to portray a message about the fatherless and the motherless.
Second, were the techniques of some of the works of Gustav Klimt, the famous Austrian Symbolist painter of the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.
Third, was the Jesus figurine in my collection of nativities from around the world.
I began thinking about the timelessness of God. He has always been here. “ …He was and is and is to come.” “Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.” Revelations 4:8, Hebrew 13:8.
When these babies, these children, are abandoned, are rejected, and are hurt, He is there throughout their lives. Jesus is their Defender Among Them. He may not be noticed among them, but He is there. When they cry and hurt and are lonely, He is there.
He cries along with them, He hovers and protects them. He knows their name. Each baby in the painting, has a word or phrase written in a native tongue of their country to portray the promises of the Defender.
