Kathy would you paint me a picture

It doesnít have to be too big

 

Pastels, oil, black or white

Colors made from dolomite

 

Make it cold, make it hot

Drip splattered paint or maybe not

 

A heavy brush, muted grays

Receding planes that go on for days

 

Monotone or multi hues,

There are no doníts, there are no dos

 

Kathy would you paint me a picture

Just make it five by five

 

Thatís the cover size of my next cd

That Iím asking you to paint for me

 

Calligraphy, bucolic mood

Chiaroscuro, penciled nude

 

Ambiguously painted space

Textured tones, a human face

 

Draw delicately shifts and shafts

Crazy swirls, pink paint giraffes

 

It will come alive and true

Kathy find the palette deep in you

 

Iíd have the finest cover all around

And Iíll be blue if itís not Brown

 

Kathy Brown
