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!

Silver Bells Original Drawing by Bertie Brown

                                                             MERRY CHRISTMAS!
a tiff or two
is natural I’m told
espe’shly during 
renovation mode
but let’s not forget
the work that’s been done
those months we’ve endured
the long way we’ve come
so may I suggest
we consent to confess
the room is just great
and worth every cent
so thanks, DQ Dave
 and all of your crew
may your new year include
a referral or two

Silver Bells
original drawing w/horn, trumpet, trombone: 6" x 8"

May your Christmas Bells
be shiny and bright
with melodies light
and harmonies tight
May each Christmas gift
remind you of this
The Babe in the stall
Is The Lord of us all

Baubles and Bell Musical Motif Drawing by Bertie Brown

Baubles and Bell
original musical motif drawing w/horn, glass baubles: 12" x 12"

a musician displays 
exhibitionist ways
but it’s all okay
‘cause music filled days
and nights do remain
quite high on our list
of things we like best
so please don’t insist
we cease and desist!
