This is the last of the recent paintings executed in acrylics on the wooden lids
of French cheese boxes. It shows the energies and colours of life emerging from the sea
and reaching up to the sky. The painting is double-sided and the reverse (shown
below) represents the literal reverse of life, the dull grey mass of uncreativity
of those who prefer to exercise their purse rather than their imagination
and are
consequently disengaged from the vibrancy of their true humanity.

Life is dedicated to my wonderful son, William, born 38 years ago today,
a natural poet, gifted with insights I could only dream of possessing!
Happy Birthday, William!
