Daughter Arise

Be not afraid, only believe. -  Mark 5:36

Story Behind the Art:

The song that triggered this painting was on the "Women at the Well" album by Kenneth Cope. I thought the sentiment was a wonderful one, about the spirit of a young girl who was called back from the spirit world to become the Savior’s miracle. Although she was in a place of light and peace, she was willing to come back to prove the Savior’s power over death. I thought the lilies in the picture were a beautiful way to show the idea of death, as they are often used at funerals and feel sacred and holy to look at. - Simon Dewey
