Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
- Mark 10:14
Story Behind the Art:
Children are a delight and a blessing, and they are unrestrained in their expressions of happiness and love. In this painting, I wanted to capture that spirit and remind each of us of the Savior and the time that He took to be with and bless the little children. The scene I imagined as I was painting this picture was Christ among His creations in a setting of peace and tranquility. I included the doves to symbolize the purity of childhood and the flowers to portray the beauty of innocence. - Simon Dewey
