I experiment with texture, shape,
play with shades of colour,
explore the theory of art.
Never meant for show
outside the college studio
these pictures hid in storage.
While work for exhibition
never sold, too mundane
so many critics said.
But then some dealer fell in love
with my series ‘Shades of Grey’
and I am now the ‘New Sensation’.
Previously published on the Camel Saloon. The Camel Saloon no longer exists but its editor Russell Streur now edits the Plum Tree Tavern which focuses on poetry and nature and the environment and which today published my poem Watching the Skies which you can read here.
Today I also posted a selection of haiku on Crafty Green Poet. You can read them here.
