Rebecca Young Part 4

The Grande Finale
Culmination of two years
of Whitworth guidance

Nothing for granted
Experience embodied
My life and my art

Struggle brings great stride
These paintings feel right, right now
Change is realized

Can’t paint my troubles
Besides, who wants to hear it?
But I can paint cake

Though we can’t eat it
It can tell certain stories
And lessons of life

How we serve others
Create for their enjoyment
by being alone

To live in balance
by accepting certain things
inevitable

Expectations kill
the joy that’s available
We need to just smile

My art seeks laughter
at droll disappointment
A sitcom moment

We would laugh at them
for their minor misfortunes
Why not at ourselves?

It’s not all so heavy
Though sometimes things are crappy
there are sweets to eat!
