This painting is based on Matthew 19 verses 13-15. This was started ahead of a teaching from the Lord about the brides being prepared with the innocence of children before entering heaven. This was a struggle due to demonic interference especially with Christ’s image, so it was a painting salvaged by the Son and the Father.
The boy in Christ’s lap is himself as a young boy. Originally he asked for him to be clothed in yellow but I didn’t like the result so we agreed on blue. He said he had both coloured clothes as a child when he was slightly younger than I have depicted. Peter is the central figure in his favourite green and with blue eyes too, the colours of a man of the seas. His image is very close to what he looks like. Hauntingly the man to his left is Judas Iscariot, who wore red, yes red. Next to him is John the Devine. I am the boy in light blue and also the black sheep. The young girl is my sister. The older girl is a follower.
