Artistic Expression

Inner sacredness of human spirits
Individual identities to be expressed
Revealing selves in ways uncertain,
Spirits often take on varied masks
While expressing perspectives held.

Artistic expression, spirit’s revelation,
Painted on canvases for world to see,
Stark dark colors or soothing pastels
Nature scenes or abstract illusions
Styles and forms, emerge through time.

Artists burgeoning depths of meaning
Spirits expressions, personal creations,
Sketches made before final paintings
Often show other dimensions felt
Reveal more completely inner spirits.

Impressionism, surrealism, Kano, more
Stylistic legacies left in history’s wake
Persisting through time and its vagaries,
Unique impulses from artistic spirits
Exploding in creative expressions.

Appreciation for paintings we have
Recognizing crafts, styles and forms
Creative urges and different perspectives
Visible in paintings’ artistic expressions.
