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!

Pouty Peonies Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Pouty Peonies
original watercolor peonies: 9" x 12"

March cold and snow
bring April harsh winds that blow
bring dismal May showers
that pour on my flowers
for hours and hours....

Persistent Poppies Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Persistent Poppies
original watercolor poppies: 12" x 12"

Sophie’s Spring
Grassy green grass
Prickles and tickles
Sophie’s pink piggies
All wiggly and squiggly
Babbling birdie birds
Chirp quirky birdie words
Buzzing bees fly
By Sophie’s blue eyes
Daffodils gaze
Tulips parade
My poppies sing praise
Springtime, nature’s fling-time
“Neath a shy smiling sun
Nature’s prelude
To the deluge 
Of summer days soon to come...

Posers' Parade Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Posers' Parade
original watercolor sunflowers: 10" x 14"

My sunflower girls are playin’ charades
I’m guessing they’re modeling
in a runway parade
they don’t ever worry
if their hips are too curvy
they’re not in a hurry
they don’t ever scurry
no, they just take their time
strut their stuff down the line
in their couture high-heeled shoe

by their fave,  Jimmy Choo

Re-Posers Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Re-Posers
original still life with sunflowers, violin, apples, lemon: 8" x 10"
is a small work
with bright colors
in the fabric 
and the flowers
still a true way
just to quickly say
though i am petite
i can truly keep

a pretty lively
 up-town beat!

Pot 'o Posies Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Pot 'o Posies
original watercolor pot of pansies: 10" x 14"

press on, you say
so that’s what I do
not cease and desist
that’s never okay…
to break through the fray
you gotta hang tough
and paint every day

talent’s just not enough

Rough 'n Red-dy Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Rough 'n Red-dy
original watercolor still life w/daffodils: 12" x 14"

I think that it’s done
and I had some fun
‘though there a few 
solutions that skewed
my original view
and managed to be
surprising, you see
so now I don’t know
if it’s fit to show
if not,
 you’ve just got

to tell me to Stop!
