His Painting by Kelvin M. Knight
Craig took care setting up his easel; finding the correct spot to reveal this place was essential. Closing his eyes, he swayed. There was anger here, fear too, violence and suffering… so much inhumanity masquerading as humanity.
Grimacing, Craig splashed watercolours on and off the canvas, then lashed out with oils. Feeling empty, he squeezed out dollops of paste, formed pastel-coloured hills that his fingers glided down until he became one with the canvas revealing this place.
Teary-eyed, Craig stumbled backwards. Two words writhed amidst a multicoloured maelstrom, colours which were transforming into a sparkling web.
