Balance 'tween the black and white
on the canvas page.
The question's troubled man through time
passing age by age.
What should be coloured
and what should be left?
Not what's practical
This is art, it's what looks best!
But maker and beholder
may see two different things.
One may see it hideous
One may think it sings
So choose your artistic balance well
because your canvas has stories to tell
