A Realistic Artist

 

a realistic representation of a rabbit

is not a rabbit

not a real rabbit

it doesn't hop around

all over the canvass

eating grass

while you paint

 

a realistic representation of a rabbit

is supposed to be realistic

but it is not real

it is a make belief

painted reality is not real

a realistic rabbit is not real

 

I must tell you

realism is not real

 

if you are a real realistic artist

just don't paint a rabbit

or anything of that sort

just become a rabbit
