Revelation on Canvas Bet Briggs




Colour on colour, tone on tone,
stroke after stroke of the brush
forming pattern on pattern,

in a passionate rush
the colours collide,
they crowd and they crush.


Colours of earth, air and water,
rhythms of pattern and line
becoming strata of life:
bone, flesh and blood,
heartbeats on canvas.

Colours in counterpoint:
they throb and they pulse,
they sing and they dance.
