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!

My Motif # 1 by Bertie Brown

Buoys Will Be Buoys

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

It’s All Good

Lobster buoys afloat

As art dotting coves and boats

Decorating New England’s coast

With more beauty than one state can boast

And subdued northern light

Embracing my favorite sights

The rumbling, tumbling tides

Enveloping my sighs

Hushing my faithless whys.....


Gazebo Gazing
original: 10 1/2"w x 13"h
Lobsterman Lairs
original: 14"w x 10 1/2"h

Lobsterman Lairs

Line historic Pigeon Cove

Quaint little shacks

Where lobstermen store their wares

Buoys, nets, ropes

And traps are stacked there

It’s a place you should know

And if you do go

Let me show you around

‘Cause I love Cape Ann’s coastal towns...


My Motif #1 (with boats)
original: 10 1/2"w x 13"h

My Motif # 1

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

Rockport Fever

Sophie and I

Are planning a trip

To Gloucester and Rockport

And, yes, Bearskin Neck

We’ll gaze at the ocean

Climb over the rocks

Paint Motif Number One

At the edge of the docks

We’ll dip our big toe

In the cold ocean water

Go swimming???

Are you kidding

We’d need to be hotter

We’ll head to Pigeon Cove

Walk the breakwater high above

Then buy some fresh lobster

At the Co-op down below

With more things to do

More scenes to be viewed

We’ll need much more time

Than the plan we designed

So we’re savin’ our pennies

Our nickels and dimes

(We know it’s not much

But we’re tryin’ to rhyme)

For our piece of the Rock

Or a spot on the dock

O f Rockport’s scenic town

The best place we have found......
