Although out of sight in cold off site gallery storage your bright
colours burn me.
 I see your blazing strong landscapes, portraits, still lifes although
out of sight.
The reds and mauve highlights the vivid gold gash sunlight your bright
colours stun me.
I can smell striking seascape feel bush writhing bluegreen although out
of sight.
A face glows with radiance-- the portrait's warm from within your
bright colours stir me.
Only one work hangs at NGV the others all in darkness-- But off site out
of sight your bright colours blind me.
