Painter Me

Green on my fingers, 
pink and purple too.
Acrylic paint lingers,
Ah! There is red and blue.

When I paint I’m such a mess,
Ruin my clothes every time.
Outer beauty must confess.
Truly hidden under grime.

Magical canvas,
Interrupts in ups and downs.
Makes me so happy,
In yellows, blues and browns.

Light and lively,
My fingers and my knees
Paint is everywhere, 
Because I am being me.

Lovely! I can relate with my mom being an artist. Paint flew like a rainbow around her! A fav for me.

Hi Caren, my old man used to get me painting every couple of years, the paints had lead in them and brought on sickness' I could just imagine you all clothed in Paint LOL. Nice write, my friend....peter

Thank you Peter. I have my own studio. When I am not painting or playing I am writing. If I had a guitar and could clap on rhythm I would be dangerous.

This reminds me of growing up... as I not only ruined my clothes with acrylic paint, but my bedspread, carpet, and anything else in a nearby radius! ;P (It was worth it!!!)

And my cartoonist friend, is it not time to get out those paints and canvases and begin again? YES! It is! Go for it my soul sister! NOW!

If you didn't dive right in and make a splash, you wouldn't enjoy painting as much. Enjoy it.

True; I have ruined most if not all of my favorite clothes.

Hi Caren, My type of poem - having fun! And colours, I have colours scattered everywhere in my poetry corner whether it be crayons, cushions, vases with flower, brightly colored scarves and a couple of teddy bears that i salvaged and kept. Great write. Poetry wishes, Jennifer.

Thank you Jennifer. My house is a virtual sea and forest of colors - most of them florescent; I live in the deepest, most thrilling part of the ocean in this way.

I hope it's latex based paint. Very well written, Caren. Warmest Wishes~ Warren.

Thank you Warren. It is acrylic based paint, except when I begin experimenting and throw in sawdust, glitter, pearls, and other stuff, then it is a fantastic concoction of pure "genius" and practically no paint at all.
