A Portrait




A portrait may be painted by pen,

as in the words that rhyme,

An artist, and in his character,

but a portraiture of the sublime,





The written language, to be conveyed,

a quality, of the superb.

Expression transferred from the thoughts,

using adjectives, and the verb.





Emotions to flow on paper by ink,

there, exquisitely displayed,

Transgressions of the mysteries,

all of life's puzzles, to be portrayed.





A representation of the grand beauty,

in nature's gifts are seen,

Drawn from a mind and by the hand,

of a world, in lines, so keen.





His palette is of the most marvelous,

the chosen colors, in their hues,

So carefully depicted in their reflection,

as it enhances, or subdues.





The written works, rare artistry, just as fine,

as are the comparisons, made of us each,

As the richest painting, is a vision, supreme,

in such lofty heights, that it may reach.





A dappling of the visual spectrum,

as in a rainbow's brilliant perfection,

The pen of the author in works of prose,

or in the rhyme, in its detection,





Wonderful is its message, a sweet repose,

or in its powerful persuasion,

The mysteries of the universe, all solved,

by the hand, in its concentration.

Painters paint with brush and colors; writers paint with pen and paper. And you're a great painter.

Whonu, I sometimes am so fascinated by your beautiful art work that I forget to read the poem... always I go back to read though. I like your expression of how the artists sometimes uses a pen and other times a brush. It is all the display of beauty from the soul. Voted way up!

Would like to see more sketches of a portrait style to back up these wonderful paintings, great to know others are going through the same thing!

As a artist that turned professional recently, I find that the worst paintings in the bunch tend to be very creative actually and not the beginning of a downfall in crticism. What is inlaid in the" graphics" is probably the right way to think around the painting when you are actually doing it!

Thanks,

Anish
