New Painting: Christ Heals the Daughter of Jairus

I just finished an oil painting depicting a major event in the life of Christ.

Christ Heals the Daughter of Jairus
Oil on canvas, 24x36".

In Mark 5:22-43 and in other Gospels, Jairus pleads with Christ to heal his 12-year-old daughter, his only child, who was near death. Christ did so, taking her by the hand and saying, "Maid, arise."

This painting focuses on the moment after the healing, when the mother and father joyfully embrace their daughter, newly come back to life. The girl is very glad to be with her family again, but her gaze stays fixed on the one who performed the miracle: Jesus Christ. Light slants over Christ's shoulder, highlighting him, the girl, and their still-joined hands.

You can find this painting on my web site and order prints on my web store, .

Please forward this announcement to anyone else who might be interested, and forward inquiries about purchasing this painting to me.
