The Connoisseur (Standing in the Way)


Standing in the Way

Dignifying Respects
Paid dues to just remain
Such maddening illusion
Norm standing in the way

  1. Very clever verse…thought it went well with the visual prompt.

  2. One of my favorite paintings, Charles. I’m a huge fan of abstract, Pollock type artistry. However, I think Rockwell displays just how amazing he was in a deferential manner—makes me respect him even more, even though I’m not really into his work. Cheers

    I was just going to say that’s a Pollock before I read your comment Dustus.
    i never was as an art student – I didnt see the merit of throwing paint. That is the beauty of expression (so I’ve learned) is to have it your way.
    delightful words – Norman would have been pleased with your sentiment

    Moonie smiles

  4. nice verse adam…i dunno i am rather torn between progress and new ideas and there are a few things i would like to hold onto but i tend to challenge the norm

    • That’s kind of how I feel these days. I like classic things and enjoy how new technology actually works! lol Either way, keep challenging the norm—you always do so creatively & respectfully. cheers, bro

    A clever play with words Adam – I particularly like the way Norm ( Norman) and normality double up:-)
    Adding this immediately with further comment:-) Thanks yet again!

  6. Lynda, you’re the one to thank for thought-provoking challenges that prompt me to consider great art through a poetic lens. I love writing about paintings. Makes me look for details and themes in the images with a sustained focus. Cheers! 🙂

  7. That last line would make a perfecttitle for this painting, Adam. 🙂

  8. Wow, for such a short poem you really packed a punch. I found myself reading it over and over again and smiling each time. It’s a joy to read and goes along with the painting perfectly.
