Abstract

This piece won First Place in the 2018 Book of Mormon Central Art Contest. 

This piece was inspired by Alma 32 in the Book of Mormon.  In this chapter Alma explains the nature of faith being something believed and not seen.  As faith grows it is like a seed being planted in a person's heart and if they are faithful and learn more of the gospel they are blessed with fruit.  This is represented in this piece with a girl giving thanks for the fruit that was grown in a barren desert.  Since she was faithful she was able to receive her reward and can now grow stronger.  The moon and star represents the spirit since her gaze is aimed up toward heaven.
