My palette of synthetic pigment. Pure paint.
I am going to paint ‘Nature!’
I suffer from absurdities of theory.
Empedocles, Democritus, Plato and Aristotle.
Their eyes could not even see the true nature of things.
Apelles said, “Four colours only.”
And here I daub a cornucopia of excitement from many a tube.
Is it possible to capture, ensnare, light distorted?
Blue and Green have been removed.
Turns to the travesty of sunset observed.
