Welcome

Welcome to my blog where you can view a sampling of my watercolor paintings and discover why for me, Art Is Instrumental. These, as well as many more in my studio, are for sale and looking for good homes!

Methods and Madness

Sometimes I paint fast and loose

Other times quite controlled

The subject decides the method

But each work has the same goal:

A painting that is successful

And beautiful to behold!

Valen-time Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Valen-Time
original watercolor still life w/sunflowers, fruit: 10" x 14"

absolutely resolute
i’m absolutely certain
some truth is indisputable
and strictly put imputable
so don’t go all refutable
i don’t want your rebuttable 
that verbal hyper babbable
you’re so above reproachable
and also un-correctable
see that’s just irresponsible
and truly indefensible
we all could be sympatico

if y’all weren’t so emphatico

to break through the fray
you gotta hang tough
and paint every day

talent’s just not enough

February Fruit Cup Watercolors by Berie Brown

February Fruit Cup
original watercolor still life w/oranges, apples, bananas, lemon: 6 1/2" x 15"

yes, things are askew
but that’s acceptable, too
‘cause when it’s called art
reality departs
and my point of view
might convince even you
that some things can be

true for both you and me

January 74 Watercolors by Bertie Brown


January 74
original still life watercolor w/violin, apples, oranges: 15" x 15"

there’s still stuff to do 
in swinter it’s true
but sometimes i must
simply adjust
my outlook on work
and shirk all that work
take time to relax
look forward, think back
embrace solitude
consider my mood
it’s wintertime blues

a soul searching cruise
