Additional Info


For this painting I used watercolors and a flat shape-based style to give it a storybook feel. I wanted to emphasize the contrast between the cold, dark, stormy sea outside and the warm, safe, light inside the vessels. Though the journey was long and fierce, the Jaredite families had "light continually" because they "did not cease to praise the Lord." The Lord doesn't want us to "cross the great waters" in darkness, but sometimes He will ask us "what will ye that I should do that ye may have light?"
