Artist's Description

Irodori watercolours – my new fav choice of watercolour brand. They are a touch chalky and this makes them brilliant to remove and the colours are so rich – it’s wonderful.

Painted on Waterford 400gsm (yep – it’s practically like cardboard and rarely warps)

I am so honoured to add this wonderful poem by Linaji
Colors and Patterns and Moths

And he flew into a pallet of his own doing
Much like the heated lights glaring
Singeing the well being of this winged creature
For safety he chose instead becoming saturated
With his patterns of choice

he was beautiful like that
it did not matter if he might die from the toxins
nor did it matter that the colors seemed wasted on his
winged, chained same old ‘thing’ pattern

they both at the moment of immersion
color to wing creating the pattern
seemed
Glorious.

Is it not enough for a moment to be just that?
Is not a lifetime always leading up to a point of
contact somehow, someway
Now, whereby
color to body
patterns and death

This moth flies his own brand of freedom
