The artist

From the brush of an artist
See the rhythm in his wrist
As the canvas greets the paint
the paint begins to flow
The artist reveals his creativity
Displayed in each and every brush stroke
Some will see beauty in the color and the form
Those will call this an abstraction
Very pleasing to their mind
Others see only an unnecessary distraction
Something that should be cast aside
But art is measured in the eye of the beholder
Art is an individual taste
Cast not aside what you don’t understand
Please do not judge with haste
Walk slowly as you pass this by
For time so spent is surely not a waste

    This is another good poem. I love art, but I can't paint or draw for nothing. As you say Art is in the eye of the beholder. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    I agree Donald, I just started learning how to paint, my paintings are very simplistic I almost flunked art in high school, that says it all, but I put my heart into it, yes my work of art is hanging in my kitchenette where I can put a smile on my loved one's faces, thank you for sharing this, have a great day, love, vie
