Why not? bloom

Painting a bloom that looks like this? Why not?

Working on lots of projects? Why not?

Call myself an artist? Why not?

Believe in my dreams even if I’m the only one? Why not?

Pay no attention to the doubters. Do what you ‘re going to do. Why not?

Keep on writing and painting even if you’re the only one who loves it? Why not?

There is possibility in every dream. I know this is just a flower. Part of me wanted to say really? All you did was swirl the brush in pink, let it dry, and proceed with orange. You used leftover collage paper for the stem and leaves. Oh and then I used the bottom of a brush to stamp in the stigma.

But an even bigger voice says firmly,

Why not?
