Through Artists' Eyes

We artists see things differently than the rest of the populace, here is just a taste of our sight :)

Looking at the world through artists’ eyes,

Each whole broken down into

A myriad of shapes.

Every color enhanced, every line boldened.

All is viewed from every possible angle

From the eyes within,

Analyzing, critiquing and re-creating,

Perhaps to be a muse or merely to amuse.

Looking at the world through artists’ eyes,

Caressing every object with gentle fingertips,

Memorizing intricate texture and design to

Create touch through line.

The watercolor strokes of a cloudy day

Contrast bold branches that house a vivid cardinal,

Cordially speaking.

Glass reflects a backwards world

Not unlike that of the distorting water’s surface

Bouncing back images of what we do and do not understand.

Looking at the world through artists’ eyes,

Hands are the most important feature,

Sculpting, drawing, painting,

Capturing the sheer essence of beauty,

Living through a dead piece of art.

Looking at the world through artists’ eyes,

A lone object becomes a subject,

A scene a composition,

Changing and growing to the artist’s will

Manipulated to create perfect form.

Looking at the world through artists’ eyes

Everything that seems ordinary becomes

Extraordinary.

The End
