One of my favorite artists to study and cover is William Bouguereau. I love his timeless portraits of common folks as seen in their natural settings. I was inspired by his orginal painting, "Le Baiser" and Luke 2:19 to produce this cropped version as a head study.... "But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart"...

Original "Le Baiser" by Bouguereau 1863 (translation "The Kiss")
