I painted this design free hand on the back of an 8X10 piece of glass. I turned it over and pressed it onto Bristol vellum.

With a small liner brush, I added some brown lines to create movement around the bow…

Madonna and Child with Dolphins

DSCF0811

The dolphin was an early symbol in Christian art. Because dolphins swim alongside boats, they represent Christ who guides believers to heaven. More about the dolphin as a symbol for Christ can be read here.

More importantly to me, dolphins grieve and mourn their young.  The reason I chose dolphins for this painting is simply because I’m grieving and need help. I pray that God will help me back to the surface, just as dolphins help those in distress.
