The Perfect Painting



Gilded brush

dipped in pure happiness

swept over canvas

sponged over with joy

sprinkled with golden sugar 

softly blown over with a warm smile.

      A fine write and pic T.
      Reminds me of some of Turner's paintings - some seem misty, atmospheric, etc. Not that I'm an art expert - nor a connoisseur - if I knew what a con-wotsit was! lol.

      • Teddy.15

        Oh my Mr O, your thinking cap is truly screwed on this morning lol πŸ€—

        • orchidee

          Oohh, I'm artistic, appreciating the finer things in life - even the beauty of trouts, but not old ones like KP. lol. I'm trout-mad!

              If a picture paints a thousand words
              Or 24
              Your words do it justice
              Have a good yin

              • Teddy.15

                If pictures could talk, this one would have uttered your words. Made me smile. Loved it. - Phil A.

                    within hues of a day's grace
                    I surmise meaning in my worth
                    am I too shades of brightness
                    contained in a pulse of blinding
                    (see what you went and done did,
                    inspired me
                    to scribble me feeble poetic reply
                    thank you! wise Poet
                    I read and learn
