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!

Endless Summer Watercolor Still Life Series by Daily Painter Bertie Brown - Art is Instrumental

Endless Summer

original watercolor still life w/basket, shells: 23" x 22

(last in a series)

what ho

Sophie and I

just want to know

who turned off the heat

and dimmed the lights low

where are the wool socks for our feet

our cashmere sweaters and turtlenecks

who said summer could retreat?

we are cold and so distressed

why can’t winter last one week

it’s time I guess

to hibernate

until next June

and we both hope

that comes real soon!
