Under fresh canvas 

cloudy day
Cloudy day, John Lyons (oil on canvas)

Under fresh canvas 

Remove the safety net
           when you tread the high wire
said Parmigianino
           paint fearlessly
peer through the mist
           capture what lies behind
what lies beneath :
           your heart as mirror
to the soul you establish
           on canvas

John Lyons
