“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward for him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.” – Psalm 127:3-4
The first thing I ask when someone requests a commissioned original artwork is his or her story. The more I know about you the better I can capture your heart in intricate lines of ink. This particular drawing as commissioned by Magdel for her darling sisters thirtieth, blew my mind. It was exceptionally special for me to work closely with a fellow Christian and hear their heartbreaking story of incredible love, loss and how they have grown together as a family, as individuals and with God.
I prayed throughout the drawing process, not only to create the best possible final product for them but also to bless these beautiful hearts. Thank you for trusting me with your most intimate family moments, the family farm history, the loss of your beloved parents and all of the special details that only the four of you would understand.
May it bring you many years of joy.
