Not always in our control

I want to begin by saying 
I did not set out to paint trees. 
But paintings are a bit like children: 
They have minds of their own, 
And sometimes their intentions 
 Don’t match ours, forcing us 
To open our hearts to the wider possibilities
 In search of a response that will result 
In a fruitful combination; a pairing 
That will take us someplace altogether new, 
And yet, somehow, familiar...
