THE PAINTED CEILING

Beam and boards in position, wood
prepared with ground chalk and size glue
from boiled animal skins and bones,
for the phases of work to do.


Background shade applied first,
followed by black shapes and designs
and then the spaces filled,
with colour-washes between the lines.


Looking up from the flat board
to the creative painted ceiling,
the craftsman lies to rest awhile,
reflecting on subject and style.
