From ‘The Watercolorist’:
Him and the paper, nothing else in the world-The
joy of color, free flowing off the tip
Of a sable brush, everything put on hold
As he sails alone, entranced, upon a ship
That takes him anywhere he wants to go
Accompanying the exhibition is a very limited edition book handmade by Lagoons
Editions. The pages form gallery walls on which 28 of the exhibition’s paintings hang.
On the outside walls of the book are nine of Mr. Cleary’s poems.
