Captured on their journey to the promise land, these barges weather the storms of life.  This partially under-seascape is painted in exquisite detail. The story of the Jaredites leaving the Tower of Babel and sailing to a new land was created for my son. This epic adventure is his favorite story found in the Book of Mormon.  I started my art journey with animals and my respect and awe of God's underwater creations can be seen in this painting.  While visiting the Georgia Aquarium, I met whale sharks for the first time and decided to feature them in this piece.
