Mary Did You Know

Mary Did You Know?

I painted this one next. Mary Did You Know?  This is Mary and Jesus obviously.  I'm a mother, and thinking about her life just amazes me.  This captures the moment Jesus would be telling her good bye before he left home and began his public ministry which would ultimately lead to His crucifixion. He knew the price of what was coming, but still chose to do it... because He loved us.  
I know this moment between them isn't written in the Bible, but I decided to paint my version of what it would look like if it did.
