The Greatest Subject
for Sue Kroll—a great artist

A painter’s eye can beauty find 
Within a bowl of fruit; 
A vase of blossoms can inspire art. 
A scenic lake can fine art make, 
As vistas can inspire,
The nude in the museum plays her part.

But should you want a subject tuned
To every singing stroke, 
And should you want a work that leaps the page,
Consider painting something living, 
Clad in shining coat—
With eyes more wise and soulful than a sage.

There’s something in a landscape set
To perfectly cast light, 
And something in a quiet stilllife, too,
But there is something even better—
Something with more heart—
In paintings of our stoic friend the mule.


Thanks in Advance for Your Mulish Opinion!
