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 by Pennsylvania Daily Painter Bertie Brown - Art is Instrumental

Poppy Pizzicato

original floral watercolor/poppies: 5"w x 7"h

Sophie’s Pouty Poppies

our poppies are wailin’

has the sun gone sailin’?

their petals are drippin’

their stems cannot lift ‘em

they’re sad and be-draggled

their foliage is fraggled

‘tis def’nitely not

a show stopping lot

but we won’t despair

(though it’s just not fair)

we hope next year’s show

won’t be rained out, ya know...
