Art lives inside the silver fox gray of an unruly beard
and disheveled hair reaching for the clouds
Bringing them down in a floating fluff of white light onto the canvas
Art breathes through the patient, observant eyes of an old cerulean soul
Beauty lives inside the mysterious
deep dive and painter’s brushstroke
Ocean hues uncharted and centuries wise
Kindness and chillax feel easy like the Sunday afternoon breeze you so enjoy
Surrounded by wading pools of endless possibility
The artist’s eye never lies
Hidden under a sarong
Making hipster chic look effortless
Stretching searching seeing
Feeling emoting
360 degrees and beyond
We are blessed in the cocoon of your light
Nurturing, safe and in awe
Releasing the oh so lovely sigh
Ooh la la, too
Opening our hearts and blowing our minds
The tapestry of color weaved with delicate precision
Painting finite pink sands, surf, sun and seashells
Red rock mountains and barren landscapes too
The artist’s way so becomes you
Leaving everyone a little prettier and softer
Sweeter on the inside
Mesmerized by your creativity
The framework leaves us captivated and inspired
The tapestry of our lives
We need art, truth and beauty more than ever
