This is the second painting in a series of portraits of Adam & Eve and their family. In my efforts to help us connect with our first parents, I felt they needed to be relatable to us. Similar moments have been experienced by nearly every woman who has ever been pregnant. It was so fun to go to this place with Adam & Eve and feel what it must have been like for them to be expecting their first child. They’d been alone together in this lone and dreary world for so long. For Adam to feel his first child kicking in Eve’s belly must have been joyous to him! This painting is another reminder of the importance of families and the joy we experience through establishing families and multiplying and replenishing the earth.

That They Might Have Joy
