Paintbrushes In A Glass Abstract by Kathy K. McClellan is a photographic image that was inspired by a poem written for a One Day Description Challenge on the FAA/Pixels forum. The challenge was to describe or write a story or poem about the subject: Paintbrush. This is a square format image.
After writing the poem a photograph was taken to accompany the words. This image is the photograph that was taken showing many paintbrushes in a glass. It was manipulated to produce a stark black and white abstracted image of the paintbrushes. This was done to accent the subject without the distractions of a background or color.
When will she come back?
When will she wrap those slender fingers around my wooden body?
When will she relieve the pain in my far end after resting my entire weight on that single point for so long?
Now. She comes now.
Oh great relief as she wraps her fingers around my body and lifts me out of the glass where I've been waiting patiently for her.
Now. She dips my fine hair in cool water before dipping those hairs in glorious color.
Oh what great joy as she uses my hair to spread those wonderful colors on the blank canvas.
Now. She gently swishes my colored hairs in the cleansing warm water.
Oh how soothing that clean warm water feels.
Wait. She plops me, far end down, into the glass jar that many of us occupy.
Wait. That's what we do.
Wait. We wait until the muse hits her once again and she rescues us from boredom.
