. Art Freezes Time Great art freezes time when a painting is hung. An image of beauty eternally young. Who painted the pictures that hang on this wall? I talked to the soul that had painted them all: “So few are you great ones who wielded the brush, Once painting soft hair and sweet face with a blush. The clothes of a queen in angelic soft hues Now frozen in time in the pose that you choose. “A rose in her hand and a smile on her face That’s winsome forever while hanging in space. I could look forever in her lovely eyes. So why don’t you paint me in regal disguise? Then hang me across from her here at the Louvre, Transcending all time having no need to move, Gazing upon her the one I adore, Frozen flamboyantly forevermore. . . LTC Roy E.
