This is the original painting created for "The Easter Story" - the very popular children's book Carol wrote and illustrated for the well-known publisher Ideals, published 1990. This image was also reproduced in the re-formatted/expanded hardcover edition of the book "The First Easter" (Worthykids/Ideals, 2013) and "The First Easter" boardbook, published by Worthykids, 2015. This interior illustration appears as a two-page spread, and depicts Jesus praying while his disciples sleep at the Garden of Gethsemane. A crowd followed them there, carrying torches and weapons, sent by the chief priests and arrested Jesus there. The art is hand-painted in acrylics on unstretched canvas, 13" x 24" and is signed by the artist. Interestingly, this piece was "flipped" - when published, showing Jesus' hands on the left, so that they could be facing the text!
