the light returns
We just hung this large, stunning drawing in our house. Elaine Holmes is an artist and teaching colleague from down the road. I fell in love with the piece at an exhibition in the Salmon Arm Arts Centre called “Dark Nights” 10 artists celebrating the solstice. We’re delighted to own it! It just asked for its own poem. 🙂
So beautiful…both the painting and its inspired poem.
Thank you, Angelina.
And you gave it a beautiful one my dear. It is so beautiful, it’s like the artist and poet are one.
Congs on getting ownership of the piece 🙂
Thanks, Roxie. It’s like a landscape, only the form is human. Quite amazing.
Both the poem and the painting are beautiful. It is amazing how one piece of art leads to the creation of another. ☺

Gradually, the crestfallen man will emerge from fetal position, and embrace the light.
They both are absolutely stunning!!
