This weekend I set up an easel in the dining room where the light is good and pressed my university lab coat into service as a smock (science and art reconciled). Creating should be fun, so I tied up my inner censor -- the one who says you can't copy a masterpiece -- and played. Midnight blue. Yellow light. Streaks and swirls of colour. Rhythm of light and night. I had a wonderful time ripping off someone else's composition. Do you recognize my inspiration?
