"He, Too, 'Hath Not Where to Lay His Head"
With this painting, I wanted to express that the essential “story” of Jesus is love. For any person, in any path of life, the need to feel and express love is an innate need. I recently drove by the homeless mission area in an urban city and was deeply touched by how many elderly women I saw sitting alone on the sidewalk. It came to me that perhaps even in this situation, if women formed their own relief society, nurturing one another, each might share human contact they desire and the hope they so desperately need. I envisioned two such lonely, destitute women sharing the stories of Jesus, realizing as they did that even the son of God had no home on this earth to rest. Yet, His mission of love and His atoning sacrifice, transcends all earthly woes.
