I was going to title this painting, "Little Lamb" but when told my dad what I thought it was about, he said it should be "Little Lambs."
I've been working on this painting for a long time. Dan Barney said that every time I worked on it I repaint the whole thing and lose a beautiful painting in the process. Sometimes that happens and what was good is destroyed in the process of finding something better...or something like that.
This painting evolved into what I am currently feeling. It's about wanting to protect my little lambs and needing to be protected as well. It's about comforting and being comforted.
With the process of repainting comes layers of color and luscious texture. I love that.
After visiting the downtown Salt Lake Deseret Book, I thought that it would be an appropriate place to display this painting, along with Be Where Your Feet Are.
