Landscape with blue sky

Landscape with blue sky, John Lyons (70 x 50 cm, oil on canvas) 

The fact is
        that anything goes
as along as boundaries
        are respected
that is to say
        the sun and the blue sky
remain above the fields
        and farm buildings

Paintings are colourscapes
        full of hints and suggestions
Renaissance nativities or crucifixions
        have become easy on the eye
imagine now a stage upon which
        reds and yellows and blues
and whites dance freely
        and follow nothing but
the most basic rules :
        seek and you shall find 

John Lyons
