The artistry of imagery is difficult to define,
it stems from the heart of the matter,
and percolates in the mind.
A thin line drawn, the simplest of forms,
A handprint in ocher, blood or mud,
Herds of extinct animals charge across a wall,
Jewelry, carvings, amulets and idols,

Mosaics created colored stone by stone,
Buried beneath ash, flood, mud or rubble,
Colored threads woven with great skill,
Charcoal on parchment bringing realism to light,
A mixture of oils and colors of old,
Engineering and architecture drawn with great skill,
Abstract encourages a range of interpretation.
We've all seen their handwriting on the walls,
Cgi, fractal, 3-D printing, and other digital art,
The cartoon caricature of a roving real life,
Who is to say where artistry will end?
