The Love of Visual Art!

The Love of Visual Art! 
     By the poets listed after the poem
The beauty born in every stroke he makes.
The master's golden touch paint emulates.
His colours and textures in crafting eye,
His mind in picture, fresh canvas applied.
He paints directly through sharp perspective
A gift to viewers is his objective
Inspired heart bleeds a deeper shade of red
This snapshot of his soul, on canvas bled.
No food or water when he really grooves
Like when planets collide, his paintbrush moves
Absorbed expression seeing over hues
Emotion beats in yellow, green, or blue.
Hints of the Master in soft undertones,
Emphasized brush strokes; Thy beauty is honed.
Listening to music, painting his heart
His work speaks well of him as they depart  
A vision he had, his talents to give
His painting a treasure, forever to live

Joy unsurpassed, both taken and given.
Gifts that hands learned, oh, Master in heaven.

I like seeing how all the other poets work with the prior material. creative collaboration is still new to me. It was a good topic to write about, plus you being the artist among us. You should read the poem over and then paint something that reflects the message Dane:) Then send us all a link. Circle of Art completes itself.
