haiku for the day: possibility

It is amazing what an artist does. She takes a bit of emptiness and soon fills it with a whole new world. It can be an intimate moment such as the boat scene Renoir placed on his canvas. Or it can be a whole afternoon in the park with dozens of  people sharing a Sunday afternoon such as the famous painting of dots of color by George Seurat. But whatever the artist puts in the canvas, the world would be less without it: 

an empty canvas
has the potential to be
a painted canvas
