"So there is a story to this painting. I went into my studio the other day to get something and happened to glance at the newsprint covering my art table. I haven't changed it for quite some time.
"The second image is what the newsprint looked like. I couldn't help but see an image of two faces... a woman and a man. So I got out some water soluble crayons and started further defining the faces.
"I love this painting because of the way it came to be. I've decided I'm going to keep the original painting and have prints for sale. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder." -Deborah Nell is an artist in Pennsylvania
Yes, all that happens to me becomes bread to nourish me, soap to cleanse me, fire to purify me, a chisel to carve heavenly features on me. Everything is a channel of grace for my needs. The very thing I sought everywhere else seeks me incessantly, and gives itself to me by means of all created things. - Father Jean-Pierre de Caussade (1675-1751)
