Parable of the Prodigal Son

Parable of the Prodigal Son

This is an illustration of the parable of the Prodigal Son. It is a favorite of mine. I have chosen the moment of reconciliation. The older son is included, frowning in the background. I have always had a soft spot for him, perhaps I identify with him.

    Aggie! Wow, This is really thought provoking - I love the imagery. You've done a fantastic job - quite a work of art.
    Great job of illustrate this parable. I never understood how the father favored the prodigal son, and I guess I never will. Karen
    Wow, what a neat piece of artwork!! Did you cut out and arrange the paper pieces yourself? I want to see more! :)
    Beautiful! How did you do all the figures? Love that you chose the moment of reconciliation (and the elder brother with his arms akimbo in the background)
    These lOs are cool. Are you going to make a book of them when you're done?
    Wonderful layout and I love the parable. I love the illistration work - I'm not sure how you do it but I do love it. I get such a kick out of the cat, resting at the tree trunk. :-)
