About a month ago I was reading back through some of my late father's notebooks - the perfect pastime for soggy Winter days. He used to enjoy constructing limericks often with a Christmas theme and his 'naughty schoolboy' humour, so being inspired to create these "muddled proverbs" I like to think that he'd have found them amusing. They might appear random but they are quite the opposite. I have tried to create a new proverb by splicing two halves together, vaguely keeping some sort of relevant meaning.
The colours are most likely a reflection of the gloomy days of January and February - it also occurred to me that some of these colours feature in our own home.
I am considering illustrating them as well, but for now I wanted to leave them minimal, and while this might not be a totally original idea, I would like to say that I didn't look around internet until I'd finished as I didn't want to absorb any external influences unintentionally.
