Sonata in oils

gate_3
        Sonata, John Lyons (40 x 40 cm, oil on canvas)

The painting is the puzzle
the painting is the journey

the painting is the gateway
a way in and a way out

the painting is a process
inchoate incomplete

perhaps never to be
finitely finished but simply

jettisoned out through the door
and into the outer world

John Lyons
