This digital painting was inspired by the lyrics to a song written by W. W. Phelps which says, in part:
“Here’s our Father in heaven, and Mother, the Queen,
Here are worlds that have been, and the worlds yet to be,
Here’s eternity,—endless; amen
I also love the idea that Joseph Smith taught, that “the same sociality that exists among us here will exist among us there, only it will be coupled with eternal glory.” (D&C 130:2)
In this image I wanted to capture the feeling of Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother planning out the worlds to be, encircled about in eternal glory.
