Brush Strokes

Canvas is heavy, full of lovely thought to place a young maiden beneath a willow tree maybe beside a quaint pool where seasons wrought. The youthful maiden known to others as Marie, trapped hearts of many callow gents' curiosity sending them tumbling hard from declined advance; all were rejected but not one held animosity. Favoring the lovely maiden admired at first glance. Will she pose a while longer the moment has brought; her willingness to be composed upon canvas artistry is an exquisite depiction of everything that is sought, the mood that captivates fair young lady Marie also mesmerizes vintage viewers to some degree. Her mind must be preoccupied on lost romance, perhaps on the young gent her thoughts can only see. Favoring the lovely maiden admired at first glance. Paint lavishes canvas wall with strokes that were taught, bringing life to such a beauty as young maiden Marie, securing with strokes and hue her inner self now caught, on a plain canvas wall painted for all to see. Youthful maiden now well preserved under the willow tree, with eyes that pierce inner depths in a lonesome trance, but a sultry smile will always remain care free. Favoring the lovely maiden admired at first glance. To young maiden Marie the painting did agree, lifting her forlorn heart into a lively dance, since the imaginary clandestine gent was me. Favoring the lovely maiden admired at first glance.
