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!

Complaining Com-Posers Sunflower Watercolors by Bertie Brown

Complaining Com-Posers
original watercolor sunflowers: 9" x 12"

Goldfinch Grinch
My sunflower girls
Never use my sunblock 
Nor do they apply
 Suntan lotion a lot
They’re naturally golden
Their brown faces boastin’
Their fearless devotion
To sunshine in motion
But there are some days
They have to confess
A shot of pest spray
Would be their best bet
For shoo-ing away 
Gold finches of prey
‘Cause finches 
Are Grinches
As they yank pull and splay
The petals and bonnets
My sunflowers boast
In my poems and sonnets
Why couldn’t they just

Gather seeds without fuss....
