STARRY NIGHT

PERFECT

 

 

Brush strokes of blue and gray

to fill in the puffy clouds.

Crayon swipes of teal and aquamarine

to meet the neverending horizon.

Each wave swell of purest white

rises from the depths of dark blue.

My fingers reach for the canvas.

My eyes travel to the brushes.

I shake my head.

No painting is needed.

No copy will diminish the essence 

of a perfect summer day at the shore.

COLORS, LIGHT, ACTION

NO PAINTING REQUIRED

UNUSUAL PICTURE WITH ODD OBJECTS

Still Life with a Parrot Tulip, a Pink Rose, a Mouse, a Lizard and a Bee Jean-Baptiste Fornenburgh – circa 1621-1648

 

An unusual picture with odd objects.

Placed in weird relation to each other.

Why these objects?

Does it have anything to do 

with the spider’s web in the distance?

The web could be waiting

for the bee and the butterfly.

The flowers could have been placed on the table

to lure them closer to the web.

Then what about the mouse and lizard?

Why are they even in the picture?

The mouse could have been hungry and

jumped onto the table for food.

The lizard could have strolled into the scene.

By accident.

But there can be no accident.

The artist placed them together for a reason.

I can’t figure out why.
