I am fascinated by Rembrandt's brilliant and beautiful exploration of Jewish subjects and themes in his painting.
Today I begin a project of looking at and exploring briefly some of these special pieces of art.
This image of a Jewish bride is one of the loveliest paintings of love, I believe, that exists in any context. There is such confidence and peace in bride and groom. The love seems strong, steady, and sure. The touch of each is lovely and powerful.

This may be more mature than passionate. But, ah, that love becomes this way is what lovers dream for at its deepest level.
