Illicit Love

Taking a 180 degree turn from my previous blog on Godly love, I’ve posted a pastel drawing I made from a sketch based on a painting by Watteau. The painting that I made this from on a visit, I think, to the Barnes Foundation, depicted a cuckolded man discovering an amorous adventure between his wife and another man. I recall some detail in the faces in the original painting. My pastel drawing, however, is in my more amorphous style. No need for a facial expression here anyway. The husband’s indignant stance says it all. We may have to wait and see if the Blogger glitch allows an upload of this image.
