Sorting through your art things, I come across a tiny palette of watercolour paints. The mixing tray a muddy riverbank of colour, left unclean as if you used it only yesterday.Was this the one that travelled through the Amazon with you to find giant otters, helped you capture your beloved birds in flight or used to sketch wildflowers? Minute details noted down with diligence and care, unnoticed by other travellers.
Your endless search for nature's wonders, caught by your artist’s eye, is left to live forever on the pages of your overfilled diaries, long after you have gone from us.
