    I think The Reading Lesson most exemplifies love because of the action being portrayed in the painting. It is easy to exchange kisses or hugs or words of love with another person, but teaching them (about anything) is truly caring for them. It takes time, it takes effort, and it takes giving a piece of yourself away.

    Hands down for the Tulip Chair. That juicy red color and sweet curves totally represent a beautiful seat of LOVE!

    Vouet’s Madonna and Child…such a gorgeously tactile work, and that sweet kiss is a great represenation of love!
