Found: Lovers, by Jarek Puczel
This oil painting by Jarek Puczel has stayed with me since I first found it on Pinterest. I love everything about it--the tones, the way the lines and faces blur into each other, and the slightly mysterious aura it seems to exude.
The artist's caption reads thus: "When we love, we think constantly about each other."
That is the true difficulty and treasure of love, to think constantly about someone else (and not always consciously, either). You are somehow fully (or even more fully) yourself and yet it becomes impossible to tell where you end and your beloved begins.
