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!

Com-Poser Sunflower Watercolors by Bertie Brown

original watercolor sunflower: 9" x 12"

The Golden Girls
my sunflower deli
has finally closed
the frailty of my girls
is sadly exposed 
gone are the bonnets
framing each face
like Emily’s sonnets
they’ve fallen from grace
their once dripping nectar
has all but been drawn
their glorious beauty
vanished, gone
the busy bumble bees
have packed their suitcases
backpacking butterflies
have flown to new places
and have you-all noticed
those feisty goldfinches
have suddenly fled
good riddance, you grinches!
so farewell, Golden Girls
of this i am certain
it’s that time of year

to draw summer’s curtain....
