Dear Easel,

Daily prompt: Literate for a Day
Someone or something you can't communicate with through writing (a baby, 
a pet, an object) can understand every single word you write today, for 
one day only. What do you tell them?

Music: Blue Skies by Derek Clegg

“Dear easel, as I admire your beauty and the craftsmanship with which you were made; I wonder how Van Gogh, Picasso or Monet might have favoured you if you were theirs. As the rigidity of your spine supported their masterpieces-in-the-making, I wonder whether you would silently whisper encouragement to them. I can’t help but wonder, with every accidental splash of their paint that may have adorned your oiled wooden surface, how grateful you might have been to become part of their process toward creating the art that we love so much today.

Alas, it was not meant to be. Instead, dear easel, you have been allotted to me in my studio; a mere apprentice of the arts. I do hope though that I will experience the privilege of your encouragement as if I were Van Gogh, Picasso or Monet. In return I promise to lean on you with every brush stroke I make, as a testament to your functionality and beauty.

Dear easel, I hope you know how lucky I feel to be yours.”

Yours truly
Artist-in-training
