Art reflects God’s “radiant beauty” – Pope Benedict XVI

Gerard (Gerrit) van Honthorst's Adoration of the Shepherds is worth many more than a thousand words. Our Lord and our God chose to enter into this world, to save us, as a baby, through a mother's womb. What does that say to us? What is God saying to us through the talent with which he blessed van Honthorst? Look at that painting. If you are a mother to be who is considering abortion please look at this picture and realize God's will and when your baby is born into this world just as Christ was born into this world contact me theartist@iamportraits.org for his or her "I AM" Portrait. There is no charge. It is free. In your email just write, "I chose God's will. I chose to be a Mother. I chose life." Thank you and may God bless you.
...or, if you have or know of a new born baby who you would like to celebrate and declare HE IS! or SHE IS! in an "I AM" Portrait please contact theartist@iamportraits.org.

All work is done in NUPASTEL on 14 x 17 two-ply Bristol Vellum unless requested/noted otherwise.

If you like what's being done here please tell others and leave a comment.

Thank you and please, PRAY THE ROSARY!

Before all ages, in the beginning, He created me, and through all ages I shall not cease to be—Sirach (Ben Sira - NABRE) 24:9

For now, the LORD has spoken, who formed me as his servant from the womb—Isaiah 49:5

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born, I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you—Jeremiah 1:5

I call heaven and earth today to witness against you. I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live--Deuteronomy 30:19
