Painting by Need

by Scott Loveall

Scarlet_Wind_by_arcipelloPainting by Need

Hesitation...
at the cusp of...
first touch,
a parry of... suggestion,
the briefest swipe of canvas,
the condensation of color.

A hesitance, poised...
in the space of a breath not yet taken.
The sweet lull of indecision,
umber or mahogany,
a peck or full tongue.

It begins.
The slash,
the flourish,
the sweep of the birthing brush,
intense, full labor,
un-reasonable light,
demanding,
aching with inscrutable need.

Now the intent is known...
the feint of apricot,
that jab of chartreuse,
the fist in full control.
This is full on scarlet war.
