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!

Rhythm 'n Blues Musical Motif Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Rhythm 'n Blues
original musical motif watercolor w/horn, trumpet: 11" x 14"

brass blast
would a trumpet 
be a strumpet
if he played a loose lipped jig
while his brother
played another
more pretentious tight hipped gig
would a trumpet
eat a crumpet 
while he played a high brow gig
could a strumpet 
be a pundit
if she shed her platinum wig?
would a trumpet
and a strumpet 
wear a 5 inch high heeled shoe
could a crumpet
 clog a trumpet 
if it got stuck in his tube?
