Self-portrait 27 Years Old

Having tried to see, elucidate
what’s lost and what remains
through eye and hand,
it is not without reason
that we should also look at ourselves
looking out each day on brave new worlds.

By Way of Introduction ...


Colourful Star is a new online collaborative project featuring images and words by artists and writers in Bulgaria and the UK - namely, Marina and Vasilena Shiderova and Tom Phillips. Week by week we will publish new images accompanied by text. There will be landscapes, still lifes, portraits, poems, stories and articles in all manner of combinations. There is no overall theme - just the aim of exploring and celebrating the possibilities of collaboration. We hope you enjoy following the project as it develops ...


Just so much light and colour
takes us back to where,
without second thoughts,
we’ll always be unquestioned:
kitchen, ingredients, implements
ready for a life restored,
this fruitfulness already preserved.
