The poem below was the starting point for this painting:-

The way we go about our lives
Trying out each empty room
Like houses we might own
Eavesdropping for clues in corridors until
Standing at a gate or attic window
Seeing beauty in a flag of sky
We’re gone, leaving the doors open
All the lights burning.
