Welcome to my blog where you can view a sampling of my watercolor paintings and discover why for me, Art Is Instrumental. These, as well as many more in my studio, are for sale and looking for good homes!

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!

Beethoven or Bust Musical Watercolors by Daily Painter Bertie Brown

Beethoven or Bust
originalnwatercolor still life: 12" x 12"

the donkey is back
supporting the cast
and Beethoven’s not
the star though he’s got
that look on his face
that says ‘sour grapes’
the horn in the glass
above that old ass
prefers to bow low
to the violin and bow
and yes, I’ll just sip
the last little bit
of wine while I’m here
“salute” to some cheer!

Punkin Patch Watercolors by Daily Painter Bertie Brown

Punkin Patch
original Watercolor w/pumkins: 11" x 7"

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 union jacks 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!

Pompous Poppy Watercolors by Daily Painter Bertie Brown

Pompous Poppy
original watercolor still life w/poppy, bottle: 11" x 14"

the donkey is back
though he’s really not
the star of this act
‘cause that poppy pops
right out of his glass
and makes my eye stop
as for all the rest
it’s simply decor
supporting the best
but do not forget
that bright yellow hue
that enhances the view!
