Do You Speak Art

Art is the perfect expression of an imperfect world!
It improves Reality, adding finishing touches to
Unachieved moments, completing them, turning
Them into an accomplishment: bringing to fruition
The artistic vision of a painter, conveying her perspective
To an unidentified audience, being able to touch them,
To convince them, to win them over, through her choice
Of colors, her brushstrokes, her scenery, her ambiance!
The artist’s eye is the lens through which all creation
Is envisioned, and subsequently expressed!
Sunrise and sunset on a canvas can encapsulate
The day and night of the artist and her subjects!
The artist shares with the world her view of things,
Her very own perception; she chooses a slice of life
As she conceives it, frames it, and presents it to
The onlookers with refined details so they can
Reflect upon it and ponder about its meaning…
Art is, undeniably, a universal language!
