A painting by Paul Whitener

PC: Paul Whitener (1911-1959) Big Bluff of Humpback Mountain, 1955, Oil

A voice echoes from the depth of this art,
“his” wishful perseverance to marvel a craft.
In its silence is hidden a message so worth,
colourful extravaganza is not for earth -
effortless, subtle and unblemished beauty,
hues of green’s enough to make it pretty.

In response to Margaret's challenge at IGWRT, titled "Artistic interpretations with Margaret - Small town inspiration...

  6. I love the way you began this lovely poem, Vijita.

  7. Inspiration, to continue. And with the green it's pretty as well. Just right, Vijita.

  8. Beautiful...There seems to be such strength, presence in that tiny cabin surrounded by mountains.
