"Beloved" by Deborah Nell

"Beloved"12" x 9"  Mixed Media on Newsprint
So there is a story to this painting... I went into my studio the other day to get something and happened to glance at the newsprint covering my art table. I haven't changed it for quite some time. The second image is what the newsprint looked like. I couldn't help but see an image of two faces... a woman and a man. So I got out some water soluble crayons and started further defining the faces. The first image is the final painting. I love this painting because of the way it came to be. I've decided I'm going to keep the original painting and have prints for sale.  I guess beauty is in the eyes of the beholder..
