Bernard Evans Sky

Small fluffy white shapes
in a cerulean quilt ─
a Bernard Evans sky

Bernard Evans was a gifted Cornish artist who died last year.  We spent a very happy week with him on a painting course in the 1980s, and ever since we have called a sky like this a Bernard Evans sky.

A small poem linked to the first prompt for Octpowrimo, Clouds and also a recent prompt Small  The wysteria clad cottage is one I pass regularly, at the end of what I call the grassy path.
