Hacking against the blandness of the canvas, the painter layered colors that developed into distant shapes. There was not yet a crowd to watch but the artist worked feverishly. Blobs of color resting the pallette suddenly appeared on the canvas as forms and shapes that developed shadows and delicate feathering of reflections.
The artist steppped back from his work for a rest, examining his work. He was a good artist and the canvas no long stared with empty whiteness. Colors, forms, depth, and light shone forth.
It was good.
