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!

Poppy Pizzicato Watercolor Floral/Poppies Series by Pennsylvania Daily Painter Bertie Brown - Art is Instrumental

Poppy Pizzicato

original watercolor floral/poppies: 8"w x 10"h

Sophie’s Spring

Grassy green grass

Prickles and tickles

Sophie’s pink piggies

All wiggly and squiggly

Babbling birdie birds

Chirp quirky birdie words

Buzzing bees fly

By Sophie’s blue eyes

Daffodils gaze

Tulips parade

My poppies sing praise

Springtime, nature’s fling-time

“Neath a shy smiling sun

Nature’s prelude

To the deluge

Of summer days soon to come..
