A Cubist State of Mind, Day 5 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

“I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them. ”
-Pablo Picasso

Day five of 30 paintings in 30 days.  I am  burnt siena, ultramarine blue and Cubist today.  What else?

Cubist "Lady in Blue"


I awoke feeling square.

I drew one.

Then I drew a circle, just to be different.

Add a line, a stitch in time and I had a face.

Am I a Cubist? Could be.

Feeling out of shape, I exercise.

I triangulate out the door.  Round I go then point back again.

Shipshape: I’m a rectangle and a point.

Lie down, touch the ground, I’m flat.

Draw this; draw that.

I’m in a geometric state of mind.

Square.  Circle.  Triangle.  Polygon.

Point. Line. Draw.

No time.  State of mind.

Square and circle; Cubist it is.


Happy Friday and I hope you enjoy my non-poem and “Lady in Blue”.  This is my “Day Five” accomplishment for the “30 Paintings in 30 Days” challenge that I’m participating in.  Its fun!
