'Honesty' by Jean Ashcroft, water colour.

I am so pleased that this beautiful, evocative water colour by Jean Ashcroft was painted in response to  my poem of the same name.  This was part of a collaboration organized by 'Platform' and an exhibition of resulting poems and art works took place at the beginning of October at the Ladybank railway station house, now an arts venue in Fife.

 I was disappointed not to be able to attend the launch as I was away on holiday, but I'm told the exhibition was a great success.  My poem and Jean's water colour were placed side by side on a wall, with a vase of honesty beside them on a table.

More of Jean's work can be seen on the Ladybank Artists' page on the webpage of Open Studios, Fife
