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!

Evensong Musical Motif Watercolors by Bertie Brown

original watercolor musical motif w/horn, trumpet: 18" x 22"

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!
