Description: 

Not long after I finished this painting, I ‘coincidentally’ red the following text In Winged Pharao, written by Joan Grant:
‘Life is a teacher. Sometimes he whispers of joy in the cool of the evening, and sometimes he speaks in a voice that thunders about our ears. But always he tells us to take courage and remember that our tears water the corn that grows seven cubits high. In many days have you known peace and quietude, and in many lives; yet are the moments of greatest joy or grief as clear in your memory as a single scarlet poppy against a chief of golden corn. So do you first record those lives with which you learnt courage, wisdom, or compassion: for they are in brilliant colours’.
