Acquired directly from the artist circa 1970

"The two watercolours were a result of my perpetually awful handwriting. There came a point when even I couldn’t read what I had written. I decided to turn this disadvantage to my advantage. That is, I began to distort my handwriting. Doing that, I discovered that if I infused my distortions with judiciously chosen colours, I could make the whole thing sparkle. In due course, I began to arrange collections of words in circles or circular forms to extract additional appeal from them." (Correspondence with the artist, April 2019)
