I screamed with laughter as I allowed the sticky paint
to kiss the canvas in a variety of strokes and ways
A red spill here, lifted and curled around
and flicked and dotted and dashed
Greens and yellows pass each other
Hit each other and spin and spiral this way
And that
An idea planted firmly lifts from the board
like an image from the silver screen
Abstract it may be
but to the beholder a masterpiece seen

      Imagination is key with this one, Chris. Only it wasn’t there with me, as this is a repost from years ago! 😊
