Pear with Earthenware Bottle
I tried to paint a bottle and a pear,
But soon it had me driven to despair--
The neck was wrong, the fruit was weak,
And did I mention bad technique?
To wit, I've found relief in simple verse,
To counter daily painting's basic curse--
That some are poor, and some are deft,
Some paintings full and some bereft.
