Mix and Match

smoke and alabaster                          the purity of revelation
baby powder and snow                     east and west, dawn and evening
honey dew and mint cream              the illusion of perfection
ivory and seashell                               surrender and treachery
old lace and linen                                the white knight
lavender blush and ghost                  dead-white faces
floral white and corn silk                  cowardice and cold
parchment and pointing                    the second stage of the Great Work
champagne and vanilla                      virgin sacrifice
cosmic latte and glitter                       mercury poisoning
magnolia and pearl                             the boredom of waiting
flax, eggshell and bone                       death rides a pale horse

  1. In this piece, the revelation for me is that the pale rider was already waiting with the baby powder. A wonderful piece, Nikita, with its evocative and subtle shading threaded through life, perhaps death’s own special rainbow. With the image, well done.

    1. Thanks Steve, not sure about my title for this one…Shades was the original one. The layout does not work if viewed on a mobile. I like to think there are alternative readings either vertical or horizontal. Glad you appreciated it.
