In my painting I wanted to explore what it would be like to be present at the Savior´s visit in Zarahemla (3 Nephi 11:14) The painting shows the moment just before the young woman feels the prints of the nails in His hand. I used my daughter and husband as models. I was influenced by the renaissance art I saw in the Uffizis in Firence. The medium is wax crayons on grey mat board and imitation gold leaves. The original piece is 45cm x 45 cm. 
Between 2013-2017, Erica studied drawing and painting in an art studio, concentrating on portraiture. She has an exhibition scheduled at the Rome Temple Visitor´s center in September 2020. Besides portraits she is planning to do more gospel art and to write and illustrate children's picture books.
