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!

Feelin' Blue Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Feelin' Blue
original still life watercolor w/blue bowl, bottles, donkey: 18" x 23"

we’ve got the blues,
Sophie, me too

Merry Go Round Still Life Drawings by Bertie Brown

Merry Go Round
original drawing w/glass greenware

how i hate
all this wait-
ing it must cease
and desist
right this minute
i insist
go away
please don’t stay
 make your exit
from the stage
while you may
in a good way
for you know you are not wanted
and we all have been so haunted.....
by all your boorish-ly arctic taunts

come here straight
don’t be late
pack your bags, HASTE
take a plane
not a train
or the highway
i beseech 
and entreat
please do hurry
to my doorstep 
you simply must scurry
i do need you more than ever
would you hasten to endeavor.....
and bring your sunshiny ways to me

winter GO
 spring is so
summer come
with your fun
in the sun
we will be 
warm and cozy
 under skies
blue and kind-
if it’s not too much to ask you
will you stay until the next June.....
 would that suit you???

PLEASE do indeed
come see about ME!
