The title of “author” is not a firm prerequisite to creating a written masterpiece. Some paintings are simply acrylics dripped on a previously blank canvas. The painter conducts his notes with a brush; freely releasing his emotions. His words pour from a pail of ink covering a sheet of paper with bright vibrant colours; much like the richness of a writer’s text. The words make the art, and the lines create the piece, but the written thoughts and the colourful emotions come from the master. We are all painters of words and authors of portraits.
