Form from the darkness 

No pots or ironing 

No shopping list for me 

You won’t find me in the kitchen,

The smell of paint is strong 

Tubes of paints without lids unwrapped in tesco carrier bags 

My eye can see the shape the hand can hold the brush 

Don’t think too much Jill lass 

Alizarin, Raw Umber too work well with Prussian Blue 

Slate Art 

Well hello there 

It’s been awhile 

Put it on the slate 

Crimson smiles while paint dries 

I’m nervous  (so is he) 

White plastic paint 

Put on the slate
