Art of the Day: Tuesday June 17, 2008

Lily of the Valley and Spider

- by Harlan

This week's theme: Flower Of The Month

In January 2006, those viewing Art Of The Day were greeted with "In November 2004, EBSQ began it's monthly Flower Of The Month shows. Over the next two weeks, Art Of The Day will look at the 14 flowers that have been showcased so far. The January 2006 Flower Of The Month exhibit features Orchids and can be found on the EBSQ Shows page." A lot of beautiful work has been seen in these shows so it seemed like and idea very much worth revisiting.

Keep visiting Art Of The Day during the next few months for more "Flower Of The Month" and be sure to visit this month's FOTM show: "Fuchsia". It can, of course, be found on the EBSQ Shows page.


Art: Lily of the Valley and Spider by Artist Harlan
Lilies of the Valley have always enchanted me. My parents had a bed of them outside the library and the perfume was magical. Every spring I watch for them to bloom so that I may enjoy the beauty of their delicate flowers and the lovely fragrance. I loved the composition of this piece, the flowers set off to the right and framed so beautifully by their large graceful leaves. The previous fall's oak leaves littering the ground, brown and brittle form such a lovely contrast to the lilies. And "Bobble", the spider, so small and easily overlooked came to enjoy the beauty of the flowers too.
