True Beauty.

copy of a Renoir painting.


True beauty cannot die
But sits and wonders why
And in the light and shade
It comes and slowly fades
In each moment in time
An eternity of rhyme
For rhymes will never lie
And love will never die
But we may sit and cry
For what we let pass by


Oil painting on canvas

Thanks for sharing the Renoir painting And I liked your painting on canvas better.

The last two lines are good. Very good.

Did you just make a copy of the Renoir Painting or did you make a painting copy of it? Me is confuse here. Me is not sure if me made any sense either.

I also like the bottom painting too as well as your poem.

The top painting is my own painting of a Renoir. I find you can learn by copying other peoples art. I believe the girl was his wife.

These are beautiful Nick - I particularly like that first one -there's something very real-looking about it. In Chinese brush painting students are told to copy the Masters over and over to get the brush strokes right before venturing into your own style that will have the touch of the master's too. What better way to honour these magnificent artists!
Enjoyed your poem too :)

Nick what a beautiful painting! And I like your poem with it.

Now, ...the top one is the bottom one too..

great job.

Indeed we may sit and cry for what we let pass by. Oh, the dangers! I am all for pursuing true beauty. Thanks.

In art school, teachers recommended we copy the masters and that exercise provides a valuable learning tool. You still have a touch of your own style in the painting.
