Go paint something

A man walked past me this morning carrying a large blue ladder over his left shoulder

His clothes and boots were covered in paint splatter, like a Jackson Pollock painting

He reminded me of my grandfather, white overalls and sneakers splashed with colours he’d painted on someone else’s walls

In a previous life he painted cities and landscapes in a leather-bound sketchbook

A record of places he’d encountered during his time at sea
