True love knows no boundaries

The subject this week for Illustration Friday was BOUNDARIES. I kept thinking from the beginning about maps and frontiers on the physical sense and about limits on the personal/psychological side and this is the illustration I came up with. I am enclosing the other two sketches I did for this piece. Basically in the second drawing I pretty much know how I want to position the flamenco dancer... but then my French suitor is more or less laying down in awe of his lady, a posture much more contemplative than the one I finally chose for the finished piece (oil pastel on paper).
