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!

A View Askew / Mozart's Feast Still Life Watercolors by Bertie Brown

A View Askew
original musical motif drawing w/horn, lamp, crayons: 15" x 15" 
Mozart's Musical Feast
original musical motif still life w/horn, violin, Mozart bust: 11" x 15"

back in the day
I remember we played
with marbles and jacks
and baseballs and bats
but sometimes I recall
though I tried hard to stall 
I had to apply
my  lip 
to the tip
of my tarnished old horn
and try not to sound
too bad or forlorn
much later I found
practice, patience, plus time
would greatly improve
my horn teacher’s mood!

A Musical Feast Still Life Watercolors by Bertie Brown

A Musical Feast
original musical still life watercolor w/horn, violin, clarinet: 15" x 23"
What, Ho
it’s FREEZIN’ outside
‘cause what is it now
‘bout 20 below??
we don’t have enough
closets of coats
to keep out the chill
of this winter’s huff
and snow, I declare
is pushin’ the bounds
of stayin’ beyond
good manners, I swear!
so Sophie and I
surrender, okay?
we’re takin’ a break
from runnin’ out there.....
yet maybe .... there’s hope ....
the temps just might rise
the snow could depart
and we’ll get our shoes 

and lay down some smoke!
