Remembering my painting teacher

I remember little things

like dirty paint brushes

colored with the memory

of the hue last applied.

 

The smell of paint thinner

escaping from their bristles.

 

“You need to clean those,”

“Hot water and soap,”

a mixture I thought would fail.

 

My jar of old paint brushes

still clean after many years,

I remember Carole Jean.

And so you should! She's saved you heaps on paint brushes.
Never let her be forgotten! :)
Nice one!
