I have to reblog this because both the painting and the poem are just so beautiful.
Original art. 20″ x 24″ Oil on canvas.
I painted this lovely scene in 2009, except it was much gloomier and quite depressing. Just last year, I decided it wasn’t finished and added colors that I believed my heart belted out if it wasn’t for joy. Then I decided it isn’t nearly done if I don’t add a poem. 🙂 I’m probably going to work on this again, because I already see some things I need to touch up on. Always happens after taking a picture. But anyway…..
There exists a beautiful place
Of a blue river flowing with grace
It’s nowhere found on Earth’s face
Not the sight of man can be seen or traced
I walk here when peace is hard to find
I lay here to have that peace of mind
I pray here when the world seems deaf and blind
I return here for a heart…
