'Aquarian' as part of Rhyme and Reason at Hazel Mountain Chocolates.

'Illusions are useful only if we use them
To help us get to our true reality.
Initiations and rituals, if they are noble,
Have this power,
(They magnify the secret hour)
They enable us to pass from
The illusion of our lesser selves
To the reality of our greater selves,
Our soaring powers.

An extract from Ben Okri's poem 'Mental Fight'.

Promised to post a high resolution picture of this painting I created recently entitled 'Aquarian'.
This piece features alongside fifteen other original works at my current exhibit 'Rhyme and Reason'.
The show opened on Friday at Hazel Mountain Chocolates to a huge crowd and great interest.
The exhibit run now Monday to Sunday 10Am to 6PM until Friday May 22nd.
