BECOMING AN ABSTRACT ARTIST
Though he painted quite well, no sales came.
He slaved o’er each piece; what a shame.
Then one day he did trip,
And his paintbrush did slip.
The results brought his name to great fame.
TRYING TOO HARD
Lester begged for a date with Miss Rose.
She was tall, so he stretched to tiptoes.
But when they tried to kiss,
Her sweet lips he did miss,
And his chin conked her right in the nose.
GETTING THE PROPER NOURISHMENT
Obadiah thought learning a treat.
He would rather read books than to eat.
He was wasting away,
But then one lucky day,
He found cook books,
And now he’s replete.

HAHAH! Love this! I especially identify with the artist one. I’ve spent hours slaving over a piece, only to have a quick 5 min sketch sell for more. It’s frustrating, for sure. 🙂 ❤
Yes, I know exactly what you mean. I once did a small painting that I just couldn’t get to come out right, so I just labeled it with a title that fit what it looked like — which was not at all what I was trying for. A friend of mine saw it and raved about it. He loved it. I was so shocked, I said, “Well, brother it’s yours if you want it.” And he did. He’s still proud of that “mistake” that I made — bless him. 🙂
I used to have a painting like that… one an artist at an art show was going to throw away because no one wanted it. It was a landscape done in reds… looked like when you hold the brush at the top of the canvas and just let it run down… anyway, it was a barn scene reflecting into a pond… all in reds, deep oranges and a hint of yellow here or there. It really touched me in a way. I couldn’t just let him throw it away. It hung in my living room for decades, got damaged last move beyond repair. But I LOVED that “trash” to no end. 🙂
LOL great fun my dear!
Thank you. 🙂
Some art looks like they just threw paint on the canvas. I don’t understand the “new” art, but yours I can tell what you are painting. 🙂
Well, that’s good to know. Although I did get a little crazy last week and just started slopping pain on the page and then drew a bunch of lines to see what I would come out with. I may post it — even though it’s a little “out there.”
