The Despairing Child by L. Martel

This is a 20″ x 24″ oil on canvas painted in 1980. It was inspired by a picture I saw in the newspaper. I was going to post a more recent work called The Blessing but my camera died on me. So I’ll do that next week. Despair is crushing  but to see it in a child is devastating.agis iphone pics june 24, 2015 095

  1. First despair then blessing will yield hope for the future ………sometime God does not allow them to be together as its only by dividing his word that he can help us to see the light of hope in a child’s eyes …. Blessed Little Children Come Unto Me and receive my word Amen 🙏’s
