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!

Com-Posers Sunflower Watercolors by Bertie Brown

original watercolor sunflowers: 14" x 14"

 the sun’s in retreat 
giving me the cold shoulder
our summer romance
is apparently over
gone are the sundrops
warming my face
menacing shadows
have taken their place
 cobalt blue breezes 
rustle about
autumn is coming
of that there’s no doubt
my sunflowers are ruined
their beauty in tatters
seeds, petals, leaves
lie tossed about, scattered
i notice the dance 
of those spurious squirrels
as they snatch the remains
of my golden sun girls
more quickly than ants
at a picnic, they advance
and I thought that finches
were sunflower grinches!
now I’m left all alone
‘neath a dry, crumbling wall
where my sunflowers had stood
majestic and tall
so my task is to wait
for this fact I hold dear
they’ll be back next year
with more summertime cheer!
