Some make their art in special ways

Painting without brushes ... unafraid
To dip their fingers in colors so rich
Then transfer it to paper with pitch

Thus forming images not quite exact
But suggesting forms with some impact
Creating illusions out of colored smears
Equating with minds, but not the years

It's a form more implied than detailed
Covering not only hands but one's nails
Leaving a certain shine from the pigment
Warming the mind and making a statement

- Tristram
