When our worlds feel restricted colour is a tonic, from the stunning lights of sunsets and sun rising over the Irish sea to the houses reflected in Bristol harbour and experiments with paint, pencil and pastels. To share colour is to share life!
A Menu of Colour I want to be a sommelier of colour, choosing hue to soothe or enliven your mood, enhance how you feel enrich your experience, no shadow cast just vivid vermillion, deepest cerulean, and of course let me encourage you to take a lingering look at my selection of yellow, green and blue.

Calling Colours for Leon my grandson and I name all the sea-colours of Killiney Bay, where we are walking: copper-green, sea-green, silver, grey pink, cobalt blue, navy, azure changing shades as clouds move over or later when the sun sinks lower. Strawberry is the name of June full moon season of red fruits, red roses, red clover crimson sweet williams, scarlet geraniums common poppies, dancing fuschia flowers. Last night, a young, tawny fox, bright in moonlight, crossed my path, paused on the grass, looked all around shook his brushtail, scampered on. Rosy Wilson
Dawn Rising sunrise lights sea lanes on calm full-tide waves a cormorant rides air, dives seagulls soar, glide seal family swims along the sea wall where I sing, "I dream I saw Joe Hill” Rosy Wilson
