"In Praise of Her Beloved"

Solomon's Song of Songs was my inspiration for this three painting series. The love the Beloved had for his confident Bride could not be changed by any person.

The Bride Speaks:

"My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag. Behold, he is standing behind our wall,He is looking through the windows, He is peering through the lattice."

The Song of Solomon 2:9

Her Beloved Speaks to Her:

"Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, And come along! O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, In the secret place of the steep pathway, Let me see your form, Let me hear your voice; For your voice is sweet, And your form is lovely."

The Song of Solomon 2:13b-14
