there are always wizards...
Wizards don’t deal in magic - they are simply wise men. The word ‘wyzard’ or wizard’ originally meant an exceptionally wise or knowledgeable person.They use superior knowledge to puzzle and frighten us into believing they have magic powers. We are quick to attribute happenings that we don’t understand to the supernatural.
I enjoy painting them. They step onto the canvas like old friends. They seem to invent themselves complete with qualities that I have no hand in creating. Some are very traditional but with humour and a sense of fun. Others are sinister and powerful with everything just below the surface. They make me feel that they have been here a very long time.
Life on earth is so ridiculous that there must be wizards that play a game with our lives, we humans have never been clever enough to invent all the crazy things that happen here !
