Art 101 drew a human face,
Shading the nose just right…
Painting a full moon in perspective;
Inventing the colors of midnight
Art 102 was drawing a flower,
More beautiful than anything real…
Every painting in an art museum,
A life history lived to feel.
A PHD in art is my window;
The world, so majestic to me…
No signatures on the canvas
An ant is larger than me.
A master paints a sunset,
Confidently boards a departing plane,
Knowing he will return someday,
To paint that sky again.
A connoisseur loves the artist,
It is beauty that he hunts…
Knowing paintings are the legacy,
We see the artist’s world but once.
