From here to there

Whenever someone asks,
"How did you get
from here to there;
How is it that you saw
the possibilities?"
it's easiest
to tell the truth --
I honestly don't know:
I sat and stared
and followed my heart;
I did my best
to draw out the colors I liked,
to keep a good balance
of light and dark,
to allow it to become
whatever it was born to be.
Creating art
is a bit like parenting,
except --
you have a bit more control
over the outcome!

I like both this and the image on your blog page. I so enjoy seeing how you get from one image to another.
