As the sculptor is to the clay,
likewise, the china painter to porcelain.
With gentle, precise strokes,
tiny hairs infused with tinted oils
stroke the surface of the porcelain
in a blur of shapes and color.
Each stroke changes the cold porcelain forever
into a dramatic explosion of warmth and beauty.
The mind's eye caresses the essence of pink rosebuds
as the profusion of leaves in heathered greens touch the dusty blue sky surround.
Visual aromas of the rose exude artistic beauty,
stirring the soul and seductivey charming the senses.
