I spend hours toiling

Stroke after stroke I paint

The work is terribly gruelling

A single painting can take several days


The windows are open but its the middle of summer

Its hot in the studio

I would put on the ac but its expensive

Still, art is all I know


Its finally taking shape

I gaze upon the magnificent visage

It is nowhere near complete

But it is still a beautiful image


Again I pick up my paintbrush

Again I paint and toil

I will never quit

Only the hardworking reap the spoils
