Contemplating an artwork
He lies down to do a painting.
A lot of people sit down to do a painting.
But he lies down.
He lies down to think about the painting
He will later sit down to do.
Before long he sees a clear image
Of the painting he will attempt.
The painting will involve
No paper or canvas,
No charcoal, pencil, or paint.
The painting will be 3D rather than 2D.
It will be performance art.
The painting will involve an artist,
Lying down on the floor,
Contemplating a painting
He is about to do.
He wonders how
He might secure the services
Of an actor to feature in the painting.
Then he decides
To save himself
Time and money.
He will do the painting himself.
