Behind the Canvas
The biblical story of Queen Esther's rescue of her people has long been a favorite story of mine. So I could not resist painting my little Israeli cousin wearing her Queen Esther Purim consume. The reference photo was taken in Jerusalem. Her confidence, strength, and beauty gave me a feel for what the courageous Queen Esther might have been like. I marvel at the thought of such a powerful generation being raised up safely in the land of their ancestors.
