tales for dreamers: the secret work of road painters toiling in the night-time
The road painters gather their colours from unlikely sources. And their paintings lead beholders to unexpected destinations.
The road painters work together in large numbers, swiftly but quietly.
They work only at night, always by the silver light of the shape-shifting moon.
The colours they use come from various sources; green from the leaves, crimson from the setting sun, indigo from the rainbow, lilac from the rhododendrons, and very often they mix up the colours to create new ones that have not yet been named.
