Here’s what I’ve learned teaching children the fun of art.
Everyone loves art,
Be it a song or paint, art keeps no one apart.
I’m an artist and there’s no one that paints like me.
BUT together we really did create a masterpiece.
Everyone needs a safe place.
There’s so much your eyes shouldn’t see, too many you shoulds or can’ts to erase.
Picking up the brush leads to forgetting, forgetting the paint brush and using your thumb.
Or opting out of water while using watercolor, oh the textures and the trees leave my voice numb.
I have to keep creating…my books…my words…. it’s as obvious as the nose on my face.
I suppose I will and must protect this happy place.
There’ll be ups and downs, lots of downs but through it all ,I shall cling tight because I hold the Ace of Spades.
Room 12 you forever have my heart.
