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!

Rhapsody in Blue Musical Motif Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Rhapsody in Blue
original watercolor w/violin, clarinet: 11" x 7"
“Rhapsody in Blue”
is the main course tonight
and we cannot wait
for this magical flight
we surely will thrill
to Gershwin’s famed score
as the clarinet soars
through that octave and more
so kudos to Allegro
its’ Maestro and crew
for tuning up Gershwin
and playing his blues

Baubles and Bells Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Baubles and Bells
original musical motif watercolor w/horn, glasses, balls: 10" x 10"
cheers to beginnings
for 2000-fourteen
I do hope my paintings
do more than succeed
so here’s to good starts
what e're they may be
as paper and paint
spread out before me
may each have a touch
of magic I trust
as bravely I wield 
my pencils and brush!
