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!

Glassified Information Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Glassified Information
original watercolor still life w/horn, violin, glass vases: 15" x 17"

Things Strings Sing
do strings
 have wings
‘cause they’re glorious things
do they sing
as they cling
to the bow as it flows
o’re the bridge
if you please
with the greatest of ease
do they screech
as they seek 
that impossibly high C
and then cringe
‘neath the fringe
of the conductor’s stare singed
do they slough
at the thought

of the job they just lost
