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!

Lobsterman Lairs by Bertie brown

Buoys Will be Buoys
original:7"w x 10 1/2"h

Buoy Joy

Buoys will be buoys

In all shapes and sizes

Just like us girls

Despite our disguises

Buoys are like boxers

Ducking and weaving

Treading ocean waters

With currents fairly heaving

The stripes that they wear

Go round and around

They look quite rotund

(Gasp) but they don’t really care

They do a sun dance

Giving those tides not a glance

They’re anchored from below

And they won’t let go

They do their job joyously

As they behave so buoy-ishly!

Lobsterman Lairs

original: 13 1/2"w x 10 1/2"h

Symphony in Sea Major

Lobster buoys afloat

As art dotting coves and boats

Decorating New England’s coast

With quirky colors its fishermen boast

And sublime northern light

Envelopes the sights

While dancing on tides

That toss those floats

From side to side

Cormorants and gulls line up on the rocks

By the boats, or the docks

As they noisily wait

For some leftover bait

Granite boulders edge the shores

Firm foundations that endure

An applauding boisterous sea

What a glorious symphony!
