Miniature painting of a portrait artist (saint Luke, recognizable because of the ox, painting the Virgin Mary) with easel (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The canvas soft
Supports me
And I breathe

The colours bright
Adorn me
And I dance

And when you gaze
Upon my portrait
I’m alive

  1. This is such an astute understanding of art, that from an artists perspective you want the work to be alive, to give the impression of his/hers perception of the subject. I do see this poem as operating on several levels. I really like how you are created the images of composition.

  2. Phenomenal! Very good. Blessings, Barbara
