Carpe Diem #1072 paint


colors
spilled from nature
onto canvas

crushed
melted and mixed
rainbow on a brush

smells
oils and turpentine
painter's perfume

paint
flowing from the brush
mental orgasm

    Very familiar Janice, but long ago! Hank mainly does acrylic now. It is less messy and kind to the wallet!

  3. Great series on paint janice. I understand that you also are a painter? Awesome. I once painted myself, but through lack of time and the discovering of haiku I stopped painting. I really miss painting sometimes.

    1. Never talented as so many but still enjoyed what I did. Gardening took over my painting time. No longer do much of anything with paints. Enjoyed it when I did it.
