  1. Hello, Reena! I particularly appreciate the way you have described the process of painting mental stories as a rush of dreams coming true. Your suggestion of using a palette knife or brush strokes to paint these mental stories is apt, as it conveys the idea of the artist’s hand working in unison with their imagination to create something beautiful. Your emphasis on the role of imagination in driving creation is also noteworthy, as it highlights the importance of allowing our minds to wander freely in order to tap into our creative potential. Your poem is a wonderful reminder of the power of art to transform our inner world and bring forth beauty into the world. Thank you for sharing your words with us. 👍👏👌😊
