Painting and Poetry

Painting and Poetry

Painting is inspiration flowing from a brush

The soul of the artist flowing onto the canvas

Poetry is inspiration flowing from the pen

The heart of the poet flowing onto the page

Blended colorful creations stimulating the mind

Transporting the viewer

Each to their individual place

Words that blend in unexpected ways

Running down rabbit holes in the mind

Finding a nest there to birth new creations

Interpretation found in the eye of the beholder

The Rorschach test of color and beauty

Reading one’s life into a poem

Seeing one’s life in a painting

Mind stimulation taking us back

Pushing us forward

Leaving us in awe

Every artist

dips his brush into his own soul

and

paints his own nature

into the picture

~Henry Ward Beecher~
