(09 september 2013)
********
White fabric - very delicate,
A brush in the hands of a girl,
From the palette - scarlet paint,
It penetrates the weave of the painted fabric.

After a few moves of the brush,
An image of a beautiful flower emerges,
It's rose - like a shell,
Worthy of royal majesty.

Colourful flowers - a few roses,
They decorate delicate fabric,
Headscarf - receives a pattern,
Satisfying the painter - a girl.

The hand of a painter - as if in the rhythm of the music,
From the palette to the fabric - the colours were laid,
It's craftsmanship and talent - painting technique,
To make a painted headscarf - it was amazing!
