I call this " The Christening Day"...

It's a photo transfer onto canvas that I started well over a year and a half ago in Claudine HelmuthS' class at Artiscope. I also used a Tim Holtz stencil and a smashed paint technique for texture.
This is a photo of my son and our nephew, Garrett and Andrew on the day of their Christening. We dressed them alike as little sailor boys they were so little and cute. These two cousins have a wonderful relationship, they are a little over a year apart and they play great together. Even though we all live in two different states they play like brothers and adore one another.
The scripture I wrote on the picture is Mark 10;16 which says: "And He took them up into His arms, put His hands upon them and blessed them." This Jesus did for the little children, but He died for us all! So on this coming Easter Sunday I am grateful that Jesus died for all young and old, and that He rose again so that we too may live a new life through His forgiveness of our sins.

Sanna, this is really touching! What a wonderful way to honor your nephew and your son. Love the colors. Good that you are doing larger canvases.
