Jared is a special spirit living next door to us.

The family members are all blessings to us and our extended family. Jared is the youngest of seven siblings, he has three older sisters followed by three older brothers.

The painting tries to bring some of the lasting joy from an eternal perspective.

I should explain that Jared likes red cars. The value on the car color is muted so that his face is still very dominant as the focus.
