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!

Duet at Rest Musical Motif Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Duet at Rest
original watercolor still life w/horn, trumpet: 23" x 19"

back in school
we learned the rule
that there were cliques
a specialty list
of kids way cool
though we weren’t fools
our own gene pools
just did not rule
we weren’t as blessed
our confidence less
we weren’t sure why 
and could not guess
but since I've grown
I have been known
to play horn well
for quite a spell
now as I paint
I simply state
this art I make
is instrumentally
a quirk of fate

Inter-Resting Musical Motif Watercolors by Bertie Brown

original watercolor still life w/horn, trumpet: 11" x 15"

we’ve got the blues,
Sophie, me too
it’s way too cold
but what can we do
I think we’ll paint
a still life today
until those blues

they just go away.....

Music'ly Inclined Still Life Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Music'ly Inclined
original still life watercolor w/sunflowers, violin: 15" x 20"
posers squared
a violin with flare
a nip and a tuck
with fabric and stuff
stripes more than one
when does it become
a still life that’s done
a g-clef subdued
a vase with bright hues
so hoping this view

is pleasing to you!
