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!

Goldfinch Grinch Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Goldfinch Grinch
original watercolr w/sunflowers, goldfinch: 5" x 7"
 Golden Oldies
  my vibrant sunflowers
 last week so spry
have bent down a bit
heaving a sigh
they hang down their leaves
it seems that they’re just
dry crumpled sheaves
about to be dust
there’s no use complaining
as they have no say
the season is changing
it’s all nature’s way
they lift up their chins
and give me a shrug
tighten their bonnets
with a sly little tug
my golden sunflowers
will soon cease to be
I cherish those hours
they’ve shared here with me
