a page about an artist who is having trouble deciding what to paint but comes up with an idea in the end.

The artist

I need inspiration
i need a new muse
i need a new style
what have i to lose?

i could start painting flowers
painting dogs, painting cats
maybe i should only
paint buildings and flats

or maybe i should draw
a sketch or a cartoon
maybe draw the sky
with a big bright shiney moon

i could draww a still life
an apple or pear
and add my own mark
my creative flare

i could paint a self portrait
to hang in the hall
i could paint all the seasons
summer, spring, winter and fall

but that would mean work
that would take time
so for now i'll relax
with a bottle of wine

Heck, starting with a bottle of wine, I am sure has made for some of our greatest paintings. LOL
