At the Royal Palm Art and Music fest,
I really felt I did my best.
Opal octopus, Majesty mermaid and Sarah Star
I painted and it was best challenge by far.
The square was a little small but still O.K.
I painted three characters, just not Melodie Mezoree’.
Then I as the public would say,
I had to “Change it Up” that day,
from the front cover of “Melodie’s Mermaid Birthday”.
That was O.K. I did finish
Opal’s birthday party by sundown,
She was happy she received a birthday crown.
Now I can make at least 3 characters big in a 4’ x 6’ square,
Thank you Mary Lou for inviting me here,
I’m glad you gave me this opputunity to paint
what I cherish so dear.
Steve Brouse is an artist
who paints murals real grand–
He paints of a bright colorful fantasy land.
Characters painted with bright colors of red and yellow
cute childlike shapes very calming, very mellow.
I first met Steve in Delray—
he was showing his paintings on display.
Steve’s painting stood out from the rest
with all his bright colors he was the best.
Steve even paints on wooden frames
tennis shoes, and teaches art in schools.
Steve came to visit me in Boynton Beach
.Also at the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival on the street
Steve made sure I had food and cold water to drink.
I visited Steve again at his new art studio—
it was this weekend—it was fun to go!
Thank you Steve for letting me paint
I hope your mural turns out exceptionally great!
You can see Steve’s artwork on “The House of Brouse”
that is his website, so check it out–
You’ll be happy you did without a doubt.
Find him also on facebook.com too
Steve posts his paintings along
with his colorful character shoes.

Half Italian, half Irish for his last name is Maroney
his name on stage rhymes with baloney.
He thinks my artwork is very colorful, with colors of May.
Now, he was good friends with my dear friend Jimmy,
they would go to all the restaurants in the Lake Worth city.
Now Bill is his first name but his middle name is John,
he was a economics professor in Michigan.
His mother is a sweetheart and she is still alive,
she is in upstate New York and almost ninety five.
Bill hopes to get in shape, I think he can doesn’t eat past eight.
Bill always visited me on Comedy Night at the Rumshack,
He always thought I was funny and laughed and laughed.
Thanks Bill for supporting me as an performing artist and
visual artist too, hopefully that big original painting will sale
when my book sales go through the roof.

There one was a Hummingbird hotel
in Lake Worth I remember it well.
I paint on the sidewalk just outside,
I was happy and filled with pride.
I was a rogue artist that did not give up,
even when they said there was no more spots.
Now this year the Hummingbird hotel is closed
still many stories need to be told
Thank you Winston for sharing what you know
and letting be in the Street Painting show.
