Why do we pick up a paintbrush?
Why does a sea breeze make us smile?
Why does sea surf give us a rush?
Why does art have a unique style?

Why does a paintbrush flow so well?
Why does cobalt green come and go?
Why does the ocean look so, swell?
Why do waves curl, put on a show?

Why do yellow and blue make green?
Why do cool colors intrigue us?
Why do we paint the scene unseen?
Why do we brush, then fuss and fuss?
