An open letter: First I want to thank artists who have followed me through my VARIOUS and I do mean VARIOUS blogs. Artists like Bonnie, Carol, JanettMarie, Catherine, Martine, Helen, Connie and many more whose names I will add later. I feel as if I DO need to ask - nay - beg for your forgiveness because I have started yet another blog. This one is called Myra On Paper. I couldn't resist this blog because for the first time in years my name became available as a blogspot.com and I just had to take advantage of that!! I would like to continue to improve my drawing skills in the hope that one day I will be the artist that I want to be!! If I were a rich person - I would send you a check every time I put you through this. Okay - here's what let's do - call me and I will pay your electric bill for one month . . .
my number is 214/973-10 -- uh - I forgot the rest!

Remember - I said that this summer I would just 'paint with abandon'? I said that I would forget the 'rules' (I don't know them anyway) and just paint? So here I just 'sme-ke-dy smacked' paint (paint terminology - look it up) in the color of the summer sun all over the canvas and look - this ballerina came on out! Today Tiny is at the groomers until the evening. I have to clean up my studio while he's gone. I see another puddle over there - and it ain't water!

Well, it's official . . . that fabulous artist JanettMarie has decided that her next series will be coffee cups. As always she is an inspiration for the artist both in creativity and endurance. I am looking forward to her coming series as well as the many new and imaginative works produced by the wonderful artists who blog. I call this drawing 'the sweet side' because of the ballerina's pink tutu and because - this summer I have decided to just have fun - forget 'the rules' - concentrate on the love of color - and paint with abandon - a new subject for me - the ballet. But first - I have to clean up my studio. My dog 'Tiny' got in there - and that puddle ain't water!!
