The title of my piece is "Brothers on the Eve of Battle."

The painting is depicting three brothers before they join the fight with the two thousand other stripling warriors. I wanted to show the older brothers with their arms around their younger brother in the middle showing their confidence and showing their protection of their younger sibling.

I had my nephews pose for me and their ages are 15, 14, and 13 the ages of those young men who fought. We are of Hawaiian decent and believe we are literal descendants of Lehi and Nephi, giving the painting a more authentic look than just having any young men pose for the picture.
