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!

Rhythm & Blues Series (bottles, bowls, apples) by Bertie Brown Watercolor Still Life

Rhythm & Blues
original:14"w x 13 1/2"h

Rhythm & Blues

A bottle once buried in sand

Shells found on the beach

Fabric patterns, colors, and folds

Form rhythms the objects now hold

And the color blue

An important element too

All conjure up an image

Of sea upon dry land.

“Rhapsody in Blue”

Was our music today

Sophie and I thrilled

To the opening way

That the clarinet soared

Through that octave and more...

We set up a still life

With lots of great blues

We have so much fabric

It’s hard just to choose

Then added some apples

Three bottles, two bowls

On top of the fabric

With plenty of folds

We hummed to the tunes

While painting till noon

Sophie, my rhapsody

In tap dancin’ shoes

Gerschwin and Orchestra

Playin’ his blues!
