Artist at Work
(Some thoughts after a week of painting/staining the deck and dock behind our house)
Monet had it easy. Just try painting a deck!
You’ll meet messes and stresses you’d never expect.
First you must stir, avoiding blurbles and gurgles,
And don’t spill o’er the side, which makes for long splurgles.
Now dip in your brush and you’ll soon be acquainted
With all the splats, sploops, and splurches that you’ve painted.
Now on to the final touches with drips and streaks,
And most aggravating, the spraying of spleeks.
Congrats, you’re done…time for some fun and frolic,
‘Til a neighbor says, “You’re the next Jackson Pollock!”
