The Portrait

I stumbled across a piece of artwork that was created by an artist who liked tonight’s earlier piece. http://urbanwallart.wordpress.com/

Ray Ferrer’s piece:

‘Life… in Black and White’ inspired the piece of poetry below, so I thought I would add it up tonight and I hope that he likes the words that this wonderful image brought about.

The Portrait

She wanted to be painted without colour,
Shaped from it’s absence instead.
Or if he was desperate
Craving ink and oil of crimson, saffron, sky,
Then he had to paint her with them all
And lay the opposites together on the canvas
To show…
Black and white are always bound
To be puzzle pigments
Where division holds only in the eyes of closed minds.
