This is My Son by James Seward
Artist James E. Seward has created the definitive painting featuring the Baptism of Christ. Including more than 55 characters and an authentic setting along the River Jordan, Seward captures the essence of the moment when God's voice came from heaven saying, This is my Son, whom I love, with him I am well pleased. Each onlooker has his or her own personality and reaction to hearing God's voice. Seward's son posed for Christ as he did in This is My Body which sold out within a few months of release. Other family members and friends posed for the myriad of spectators and for John the Baptist. Each character required an individual photo shoot and sketches.
