Entry 21: The Better Artist

AccidentalPerfectionistBlog

Who is the better artist?

The one who draws precisely what she

Sees

With each stroke,

Shading carefully,

Measuring for proportions

Converting canvas into reality,

As if developing a photograph?

I think otherwise.

The artist who fills their masterpiece with

Interpretation,

Interaction, who

Creates, not imitates

Is the Magnificent artist.

To this wisdom, I held true at age 16  

And in 26 years since I have become a master

Imitator.
