Studio corner…

My Studio Corner


Brushes and paint lie dormant

Dormant man – fighting infirmities

They call it lockdown…

As it ventures to catch your brain


Shaking-off the shackles

Of indolent’s stealth

At least the eye can lift itself

To look again


At the industry hand and brain has formed

Former works – done for me

For me it oft seems a lesser reward

Determined by the fickle browse of 

Moods jury


Never a unanimous verdict

Only one short-lived before it is changed

I will give you them all

Only say the word

And my gallery is yours


But I must not let my hunger

For man’s empty praise

Cause me to sell this birthright

For a mess of pottage

Make Some Art

Make Some Art

Make some art

As all appreciation is accompanied by smiles

Is it a dissertation – a poem – a scrawl?

A picture you painted – painted for the wall?

Is it a sculpted piece – minimalist and neat?

Or made of old phone books on a seat?

Make some art – re-contextualise your bed

Or go for a walk placing sticks along the path you’ve tread

Send out your message on blog vlog or instead

Say whatever comes into your head

And shout it out from your veranda

To passers by – like goosey goosey Gander

Make some art

Your appreciation will rise

If you take the time to create in any kind of guise

Splash the paint as your intuition may dictate

You are creative it isn’t too late

You are still in with a chance

To help civilisation advance
