In His Hands
Painting - Oil On Canvas
I imagined a precious little unborn baby when pregnancy has reached about 26 weeks. I wanted to present the value and potential of every new life. To emphasise baby’s individual personhood, I changed the face to that of a six-month old baby. His or her unique DNA programming has been in place since the moment of conception. Now all the incredible body systems are in order. The only things that are needed are time and loving nurture.
Baby is happily basking in divine light and is free from fear, cradled in God’s strong and gentle hands. The symbols of His love and Jesus’ sacrifice on our behalf came as the painting developed. The words, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;” found in Jeremiah 1 v 5, kept going through my head.
I hope ‘In His Hands’ will encourage those who face carrying their baby through to childhood. I also hope and pray that this painting will bring comfort to those who have lost a baby.
