Portrait of unknown woman

Portrait of unknown woman

Renaissance style
Artifacts set to frame the sitter
Clues and depth for posterity
No cut off noses under chins

Rather a broad smile, eyes sparking light
Looking directly towards me
No Mona Lisa smile, broader beaming
Eyes spark, happiness added with
something more quizzical
Dark glasses dominate and frame
Yet the gaze pulls, holds challenges

Long blonde hair a parallel or parodox
Hair the longest ever
Age the oldest
Skin smooth I gaze closer and see
Wrinkles deepening below the mouth
The slight crepeiness of the decollate

Renaissance style
Artifacts set to frame the sitter
An old bear lifetime confident
A blood pressure machine
Nurses badge and watch
A pile of books, one novel
The rest poetry books
The painted silk shawl and silk paints
A music player
Jade elephants

Portrait of woman unknown with snippets of life
