Song of Songs Bride

8×8″ oil on artist’s gessoed panel; available through the artist.

King Solomon’s Song of Songs includes a poetic dialogue between lovers, providing only a hint of the passion of God for the people he pursues. The groom goes to great lengths to find the bride, and the bride, so lovely in her longing and preparation, awaits the embrace. She is called the Bride of Shulam, dark and beautiful. She symbolizes all imperfect human life before God, dark, beautiful and passionately loved.
