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!

Jazzy Tricks and Lollipop Licks Watercolors By Bertie Brown - Art is Instrumental

Jazzy Tricks and Lollipop Licks

original musical motif watercolor w/trumpet, trombone, drums and piano: 22" x 13"

Now Sophie and I

are listening to

jazz and the blues

on Sophie’s i-tunes

it’s time that we stray

from classical ways

Mozart and Bach

are great but we’ve got

to broaden our view

with music that’s new

and classical brass

can play jazz with class!

  1. I love this painting! I can think of no other way to describe it but "HAPPY". The lollipop is perfect.

    1. Thank YOU! I love that lollipop too...seems to be the right thing to paint during the doldrums of winter!
