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!

Coloring Inside the Lines Musical Motif Drawing by Bertie Brown

Coloring Inside the Lines
original drawing w/violin, horn: 8" x 13" 

strings are things
that go plunk
when they’re plucked
but when they are bowed
well, properly so,
they sing full and  free
with the greatest of ease
like an acrobat high
on the flying trapeze

Silver Bells Musical Motif Drawings by Bertie Brown

original drawing w/violin, sunflower: 10" x10"

Silver Bells
original drawing w/trumpet, trombone, horn: 14" x 17"

a Prickly Pair
we’re in despair
it’s not funny, I’m not sunny
and he’s def’nitely not Cher
seems bickering fills the air
and tempers tend to flare
‘cause these ‘renos’ are just
filling our home with dust
I’m sure when it’s done
our new stuff has come
we’ll ask ourselvs why
we let our tempers fly
we  won’t even mention
our former contention
‘cause we’ll be content
with our new firmament!

are estimates
mere guesst-imates
or simply suggest-imates
perhaps they’re new testaments
of builder’s projection-ates
whatever the case
my sinuses say
they’re getting congest-imates
o’re all these invest-aments!
