The Art of Emotion, 2002.
As radiant colors pour into my eyes
Emotions too strong for words or control
Ideas flow as a rushing mountain stream.
A kaleidoscope of hues at sunset
Faint lights from a distant town
A serene willow in a country meadow
Metropoliton motion on a city street
At this instant of inspiration,
I feel alive,
And I feel brave.
The tones. The motion. The mood. The rapture.
A casual corner cafe in the summer's breeze
Autumn tones smeared along the roadside
Thunderous waves on a New England shore
Soft snowflakes falling a winter fire
I gather my tools
As I gather my soul.
The culmination of thought, emotion, and passion
As I begin my painting,
I am alive.
