Something Too Dear - original oil painting
"Something Too Dear" by Olivia Beaumont. This painting pays tribute to my favorite work by Rembrandt, known as "The Jewish Bride".
The scene is a very tender one, conveying a strong sense of spiritual intimacy.
Goat hooves and horns are not the same incredibly sensitive sensors that human hands boast. They are expressive in a way that is a bit more crude. Through that awkward clumsiness I hope to convey a sense of tenderness, empathy, and partnership in the exchange.
