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!

Sunflower Alley Series By Bertie Brown

Sunflower Alley

original:15"w x 21"h

And So It Goes

Seems the sun has turned a sudden cold shoulder

On our summertime romance,

Apparently now over.....

Gone are those golden sundrops

Dripping so warmly upon my face

Shivering shadows

Have now taken their place

While cobalt blue breezes

Rustle about,

Announcing the advancing autumnal season,

Teasing my summer tee shirts,

Taunting my silken skirts.....

The sun flowers are ruined

Their beauty in tatters,

Seeds, petals.....leaves,

Tossed about.....scattered.

So begins the march

Of the soldiering squirrels

As they gather the remains

Of my golden sun girls.....

[As quickly as ants

At a summertime picnic, they advance,

And I thought finches

Were sunflower grinches!]

So I’m left with the memories,

A great golden wall

Where my sunflowers surround me

Standing true, standing tall.

But wait,

Did that sun just now say?

“I’ll be back”

For next summer’s jitter-bug days!
