Mike Smith


The Artist


With a stroke of the brush
The artist can bring it to life
All the images we see
Are as sharp as a knife

The details are exquisite
From the first touch to the last
Expressing everything on canvas
The impact is quite vast

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Is an expression often used
Art is not always as it seems
Some are more easily confused

What you see is not always what you get
But what you get is always what you see
Each person’s view is diverse
Open up your mind and set it free

Creativity can’t be taught
It’s something built within
Start by removing your boundaries
And listening to all the din
