What does it take to paint?

What does it take to get out my paints?
It takes empty hours with no constraints,
Quiet surroundings and clean, neat spaces,
Room to explore my artistic graces,
No distractions of any kind,
And most of all, a willing mind –
Willing to try and fail,
To be patient with small detail,
Accepting whatever the outcome,
Even if it’s humdrum;
Such perfect circumstances are rare,
Which means I need to begin with prayer.

Artistic Chaos
