Prompt ~ ARTISTIC FAILURES
(A sonnet for Sunday)
by John Yeo
I love adding the detail to a very fine drawing
Then painting a picture for sensual pleasure.
I love the satisfaction of producing real art,
The pure creative pleasure of building a picture.
A feeling of accomplishment at the completion
Positive reinforcement of my own interpretation
Producing a likeness, a creation of beauty.
The application of paint in glorious colours
To produce a picture to match the mind’s eye
This relaxation has benefits beyond measure
Blocking out mundane thought by contemplation
Of the subject, and the total intense concentration.
Leading to a final interpretation. Hard to resist.
The question. Why did I not become an artist?
