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!

Shell Seekers Watercolor Seashell Motif by Daily Painter Bertie Brown - Art is Instrumental

Shell Seekers

original watercolor seascape: 9" x 8"

Sea Treasure Seekers

oh Sophie and I thrill

when our bag is filled

with treasures we find

by Dewey’s tide line

clam, conch, mussel shells

and driftwood as well

but we must confess

we’re kind of obsessed

as we search around

the best thing we’ve found

no contest, hands down,

are bright shiny bits

of sea glass that sit

‘most buried in sand

but oh, aren’t they grand!

Musically Inclined/Petite Suite

original watercolor musical motif/Trombone: 6" x 9"

using bold lines

just to quickly say

though I am petite

I still can keep

a pretty lively up-town beat!

Sophie's Stuff Water Media Abstract by Sophie Brown

Sophie's Stuff

original water media abstract: 10" x 8"


I bet you don’t know

that 4 letter word

spelled R-E-S-T

is the absolute worst

as a bad word it’s first (!)

according to Sophie

who knows at BB’s

she makes all the rules

‘cause she is no fool

she just has to say

hey BB, let's paint

of course I obey

and we paint all day!

Lyrical Landscape Watercolor Landscape with Fields and Barn by Daily Painter Bertie Brown - Art is Instrumental

Lyrical Landscape

original watercolor landscape with fields and barn: 14" x 11"

oh my Sophie says

I really love it when

BB takes me en plein air

there are vistas everywhere

lots to paint

a new landscape

and someday I think I’ll try

to sit still and paint the sky

or a bluebird on the wing

but for now I’ll play and swing

and let BB do her thing......
