Poem for a Friend

By flowing hands
Of humble heart
Her mind creates
Distinctive art

She’s Karima Osterlund, an abstract artist who hails from Dublin, Ireland. I encourage you to visit her on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, to enjoy her extraordinary artworks and inquire about purchases. Thank you!

She paints by feel
As lines and shapes transform

A blank canvas
Is brought to life
Her gentle vision, warm
