UNREALIZED DREAM


UNREALIZED DREAM

 

From the times through college when I used to paint,

I’ve always had a dream…

To paint the sky and women and men

As those painted by the masters were seen.

My paintings are basic, Grandpa Moses-like,

My “noses” can barely be seen…

But a charcoal study by an artist showed

How quickly a nose could be keen.

The paint mix to make realistic skin glow

Seems so far above where I’m cast…

I’m sure there’s a way, but as yet

I haven’t had the time or courage to ask.

Abstract is okay, but I like realism

To flow like a hand in glove…

I’ve yet to master the desired effect

In oils, acrylics and love.
