Paintings come in many styles, Realism, Abstract, Art Deco and the 
romantic Impressionism of Monet,
old masters and new such as Van Gogh and Picasso’s colourful Cubism 
soon catch the eye when on display,
the media can vary from acrylic paint and tubes of watercolour to charcoal,
pencils and pigments mixed with oil,
stretching canvas over a wooden frame and priming, creating a painting  
then adding texture with gold leaf foil.

Planning the composition of a seascape and sketching the fine contour 
lines after taking the easel outside,
using a background colour wash then creating movement and perspective 
with the sun highlighting the receding tide,
a damp sable round tip brush picks up the watercolour base then requires  
 cleaning in a water filled glass jar,
mixing the blocks of colours in shallow pans, checking that the perspective  
is correct, adjusting for near and far.

Sitting upon hexagonal pieces of blonde wood honeycomb, a three tone 
expertly carved bumble bee,
pyrography is the art of creating a picture by burning marks on leather or
a smooth grained piece of tree,
using upcycled metal to fabricate a copper coloured running hare results in
a stunning life like design,
a high level of artistry and skill is required to sculpt a life sized polished 
silver horse with flowing elegant lines. 

Using a potter’s wheel produces a rimmed rose bowl with a colourful kiln 
fired glaze painted on the clay,
sculpting can form exceptional modern pieces of art and figurines from a 
base material used every day,
whether using a brush, chisel, welder or throwing clay with skilled hands, 
the art of creating you loved so dear,
whenever I see a captivating picture, drawing or sculpture,
this brings you ever closer, brings you ever near.

Beloved Mother Jane Farthing 1929- 2017

A poem can express innermost emotions after the loss of a loved one or friend.
My poetry is written to be gently uplifting and evocative, reminding the reader or listeners of the loved one or friend’s love of creating art.
