Painter’s Symphony


The canvas a din of color

No idea where artist did start

Brush strokes roar across each other

And magically it becomes art

Reds streak the scene like trumpet blast

On the under hue of the bass

Strings adding blues allegro fast

Shadowed reeds highlight portrait face

Each tool and color brought to bear

Upon matted white pearl surface

Orchestration of kind so rare

A work of heavenly purpose

The crescendo rises in green

The blacks keeping a steady beat

Sounds so worthy of being seen

Painted across white linen sheet

Depicted there upon the plate

A master work of great renown

Skillful hands moved as if by fate

Where colors harmonized resound

Oh, if mine this wonderous gift

This great symphony of technique

Then lives of others I could lift

Beauty of songs drawn in oblique

    Absolutely stunning image and accompanying piece. The image reminds me a lot of the Fiori de Como, by Chiluly; the ceiling sculpture in the lobby of the Bellagio in Las Vegas โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ–ค
