Work in Progress; Jesus in Heaven with little Children

I am working on a digital painting featuring Jesus in Heaven with two little Children, surrounded by Angels. The painting is about God’s Love for us and how our souls approach God like little Children. I am basing the illustrations of the Children on my own Children, from when they were small, though they have now grown up. Here are some Scriptures which have inspired me:

Luke 18: 15 – 17

“15 People were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them; and when the disciples saw it, they sternly ordered them not to do it. 16 But Jesus called for them and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. 17 Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.”

1 John 4:7

God is Love

“Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.”
