A Life with Paint

I paint, you see,
And I draw, but not as well.
Colour is the thing
For expressing my emotion of the moment;
Beauty, anger, ugliness, joy.
Mood has shown itself in paint
For a third of a lifetime.
The challenge is primary,
Secondary if you wish.
History through art on canvas,
Landscapes in galleries,
Abstracts in exhibitions.
Tones, shades and tints are my weapons.
Hundreds of paintings fill my house.
Where will they go when I fade away?
They are my memories,
But probably for no-one else.
