Become as a Little Child
Scripture (s): 3 Nephi 9:22
Therefore, whoso repenteth and cometh unto me as a little child, him will I receive, for of such is the kingdom of God. Behold, for such I have laid down my life, and have taken it up again; therefore repent, and come unto me ye ends of the earth, and be saved.
Story Behind the Art:
This idea came to me one Sunday as I walked into sacrament meeting. Like a lot of the ideas I get, I could see in my mind only the main subject. When I receive inspiration like this, it often starts out as a simple idea but I don’t know what the surroundings or details are going to be until I start sketching, and sometimes not until I start painting. I am often surprised by how everything comes together and works as a whole, as if the entire painting was designed by someone who had the whole picture in mind from start to finish.
