The Bride at the Door
Song of Solomon 5:5 I arose to my beloved; And my hands dripped with myrrh, and my fingers with liquid myrrh, On the handles of the bolt.


Here the Shulamite, is awakened and is looking out the doors for her beloved. The doors are currently open for her to seek Him out. Her hands dripping with myrrh are symbolic of the struggles in her heart to be transformed .
She is preparing herself for her "Beloved".

"I Am My Beloved's"

Song of Songs 1:5

I am dark but lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem...
1:6 Do not stare at me because I am dark, because I am darkened by the sun.
She is confident in who she belongs to and who she has become... her Beloved's.
'I Am Dark But Lovely'


'He is Mine'

  1. Hi Lee, love your talent and your beautiful paintings. Glad to see that you have this format for showing your work. I always love hearing from you. I had to smile at the "semi-retired" inspired comblogulations. Please stay in touch, we miss you when you're gone too long!
    Your friend,
    In Jesus and in Life.

  3. Hello, dearest Lee...I left you a comment here some time ago...don't know if it ever made it through...but I wanted to leave you another...and this time, to remark upon your Romanian train...My husband was involved with mission work to Romanian orphanages for several years...and so this painting is particularly meaningful to me...I love it! What I love so about your paintings is that they are so much more than simply fabulous art...they are hold rich meaning...as analogies for life and the world around us! I can't wait for you to post on your Fine Art site...I keep checking...but I know you are about the things which matter most...and so there is no hurry! I love you! Janine XO
