The Evening Primrose by Dorothy Parker

You know the bloom, unearthly white,
That none has seen by morning light –

The tender moon, alone, may bare
Its beauty to the secret air.
Who’d venture past its dark retreat
Must kneel, for holy things and sweet,

That blossom, mystically blown,
No man may gather for his own
Nor touch it, lest it droop and fall….
Oh, I am not like that at all!

Spotlight Art – Comfortable in my Misconceptions – Painting of the Day by Larissa Eremeeva

The image depicts a painting titled Comfortable in my Misconceptions by the artist Larissa Eremeeva. The work is an abstract expressionist painting which the artist speaks of as an "evocative abstract". A beautiful sense of quiet, gentle clarity is built up through mark making and a finessed colour palette of greens, blues, white, yellow and ochre fuse one into the other and is combined with charcoal, oil sticks and graphite. Sand and impasto give subtle plasticity and extra dimension to the work. All these elements  provide depth and movement which gives the painting its dramatic intensity. The work is engaging, thought provoking, explores the infinite possibilities of composition, form, colour and line. and inspires spacious pathways to the imagination.
