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!

Eggplant Eggs-travaganza by Bertie Brown

Eggplant Eggs-travaganza

13"w x 10"h

Egg-ceptional Eggplants

Sophie says let’s do a painting today

We’ll use some veggies

With plenty to say

There at the groc’ry store

Dark and demure

Eggplants so purple

Their beauty secure...

Yes, let’s buy them

Not to fry them

But to show the world

Their outspoken beauty

It’s really our duty

To capture their deep.....

Dark sheen!




  1. Bertie, I've nominated you for a Sunshine Award. You can pick it up on my blog site.

  2. Thanks! I will have to have my daughter-in-law help me (I'm so tech challenged) so it may take awhile! It's great to know someone is noticing my blog!!
