Her art took on a new beauty
rust etched the background
creating a sepia contrast
red, ochre, black ground and mixed
embedded under her nails
each brush an ally
each painting a well-known friend
pochade box hinges creaked
suffering its own form of arthritis
and she the master of life’s canvas still
Laurie Kolp’s prompt at Poetry Jam this week was “Rust.” Having just been at my childhood home aka art studio, I felt compelled to write in rust colored ink.
