ARTSPEAK! Poem #28 "Color Talk"

Hello, and welcome to day #28 of ARTSPEAK!, my Poem-a-Day Project for National Poetry Month 2015, in which I am writing from images found in the online collections of the National Gallery of Art and focusing on dialogue, conversations, what does the piece say? 

Just 2 more days to go!!!

Today's piece is "Boat and Trees" by Jacoba van Heemskerck van Beest.

I love this painting! It's deceptively simple, isn't it? I really think the black background sets it apart. And that got me thinking about color, the use of color, color as a tool. Soon I had a poem!

Be sure to visit Amy at The Poem Farm to see how our Progressive Poem is finishing!
