Joseph’s Treasure by Maria Lang

Joseph’s Treasure by Maria Lang

This was my contribution to my family’s Christmas card in 2015. (A few other pictures on this page are from past years.) This year I wanted to capture a “foster” father-son moment between Joseph and Jesus. I was inspired to do this because of how loved and protected I’ve always felt by my own dad, so I actually modeled this painting after a photo of me and my dad when I was a baby. I sort of have this headcannon of Joseph more than just adopting Jesus as his own son, but of having a deeply special bond with Him. I love to think of the father he chose to be to Jesus despite all the fears he must have had.
