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!

Uptown Girls By Bertie Brown

Uptown Girls

12 1/2w x 17 1/2h

“It’s Raining, It’s Pouring....

Sophie and I were bored

As we peered out the back door

And had to acknowledge

The steady downpour

We put on our thinking caps

Our imagination soared!

Hmm, I know,

The Strasburg Railroad goes

To Paradise and back

A short scenic trip

Where Amish farms sit.

Sophie said, “No!”

We’ve already seen that

Let’s go to New York

Via Lancaster’s Amtrak.

We’ll walk up Fifth Ave

Take in all the sights

We do wish “Les Mis”

Was playing The Shubert tonight.

We’ll visit Times Square

With bright neon lights

On tall buildings everywhere..

We quickened our step

We really must get

Ourselves to the Met

For a fabulous new show

Bronzino drawings, you know.

Let’s not forget

That giant statue-et

We hailed a taxi

To the Staten Island Ferry

The ride was right quick

With no time for me

To be quite sea-sick!

The day was soon gone

We made our way back

To Grand Central Station

Our memories intact.

This mini- vacation

Was great stimulation

The ride home so relaxing

We spent the time happily

Dozing and napping...
