My Art

Ivy (Prose and Visual Arts Editor)

My Art

It does exactly as I say, long strokes or short movements

Stained from the countless times it was dipped in paint.

The bristles are soft and light, taking me away

Into another world

Another world that focuses on art

My art

As I lock myself in my room and paint for hours

The bristles get tired and weak

My hand cramps as one of the hairs gets stuck in wet acrylic

I sigh as I realize that my art is not complete

Without my brush.
