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!

There's Still Life Watercolors by Bertie Brown

There's Still Life
original watercolor still life w/bottle, sunflower, apples: 11" x 14"

Sophie Says
what ho
i really want to know
who’s lying in that manger bed

with a stable roof o’er His head
and why are there reindeer
flying in the night sky
with a guy in a sleigh
following close behind
there’s a tree in our house
with packages strewn about
and Mommy's in a fuss
baking lots of good stuff
it’s confusing, you know
for a six year old, so
i’ll just ask BB
she'll explain it to me!

Pic o' Pitchers & Pot Still Life Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Pic o' Pitchers & Pot
original watercolor still life w/pitchers, coffe pot: 15 1/2" x 17"

absolutely resolute
i’m absolutely certain
some truth is indisputable
and strictly put imputable
so don’t go all refutable
i don’t want your rebuttable 
that verbal psycho-babbable
you’re so above reproachable
and also un-correctable
but that’s just irresponsible
and truly indefensible
we could be more sympatico

if you weren’t so emphatico

Beaded BB Purses by Bertie Brown

Beaded Purses by BB
yes, a departure from WC painting,  but not for long!

the BeGe Grandies
of 2015
‘though growing quickly
are still The Bee’s Knees

there’s Aaron, he’s 3
the youngest grandie
so stubborn and smart
a whippersnapp-ee!
now Annabelle’s 5
all blondie-blue eyed
a whirlwind energized
in pre-K she thrives
and Sophie, she’s 6!
a sweet sunny mix
first grader, big Sis
WOW, these years went by quick!

so PopPop and I
would not be remiss
to tell our sons this
and this we insist:
these years are the best
through triumphs and quests
in decades you’ll attest

twas as good as it gets
BB '15 
creating differently during the Christmas build-up!
