there i sit
staring down at the paint
at the potential
wanting to put all the colors
what to make

a sunset
pinks,blues and oranges

my familys christmas tree
green,red and yellow

a winter morning
brown, frosted whites and vibrant red cardinals

your face
the perfect balence
of a winter snowstorm
the leaves hazel trunks

as i paint my picture
your all i can think about is you
my mind is cleared of everything but your face
so thats what i paint
