Ode to painting

Working On It

Painting pouring brushes knives

Sponges rags whatever applies

Removing paint to redo

Linking layers the painting through,

Underpainting part exposed

Like memories partly decomposed

Another link to time or place

An eroded shoreline or mountain space

what was what is what might have been

within the paintings

Is the theme.
