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!

Piano Man Musical Motif Watercolors by Bertie Brown

The Piano Man
original watercolor w/horn, piano, violin, Mozart: 11" x 14"

The Maestro’s Woes
Horns near the backdrop
The Strings own the front spots
Right in the center
Are the Woodwind renters
Drums and percussion
Beat out the instructions
Harp and Celesta 
Join in their discussions...
Playing together for better or worse
Learning the music
They all must rehearse
Perfecting rhythms
Some tricky, some fun
All of the orchestra
Playing as one...
Meno mosso
And Con Brio, too
Mezzo, Piano, Fortissimo Piu
We love all those ways 
To play!
Tubas and trombones
Will fight for their turf
Oboes with puffed cheeks
Look ready to burst
Flutes, Clarinets
The Violas, Trumpets
All so polite 
As they try not to fight.....
Instruments waiting for Maestro to cue
Watching the down beat
His hand in their view
A Violin shrieks
A clarinet squeaks
Scowls from the Maestro
But onward they go...
When notes don’t sing
From the high strings
Or a horn butts in
The music continues
The Maestro in tow
The audience shouts
