The Two Marys

Here's a little watercolour I made. It's watercolour pencil on gesso on paper after Boucher's painting 'Sylvia Freed by Amyntas'. I painted it to represent the two Biblical Mary's. Both of the women in my painting have symbolic notions of either depending on which set of symbolism you bring to the picture. I want viewers to see the physical and spiritual bodies of each. And how ever it is that they understand the physical and spiritual relationship, that the viewer is reminded that one must untie the other so that they can unite with each other for a more qualitative experience in life.
