'floral doodle - make it up' by myra anderson. . .

When I first started painting decades ago...(decades? crying emoji here) I started with still life, fruits and flowers.  I can't really remember why I switched to figurative work but I think Degas ballerinas had something to do with it! This is almost finished using markers only...watercolor set just for the pretty colors!  Smiling emoji here!

We have walked a lot of art miles...and we have thousands of miles to go! Fun when it 'works'. Determined when it don't!  Insert smiling face emoji!

'brain's a noodle - so I doodle' by myra anderson...

A day of doodles...C'mon artists!!! Everyone knows that - well - MOST artists have more than fifty tubes of paint! Am I right? LOL! This is a page of marker doodles.  What fun! If I said that I have only fifty markers...would ANYONE believe me? Anyone? And if most artists don't have at least fifty tubes of paint...do I need some kind of intervention?  Well?  Do I?

'zip-ba-dee' doodle all day...by myra anderson

How do you even spell 'zip-a-dee' doodle? Anyways...I mentioned that I haven't been painting lately and...I looked at my maybe fifty tubes of paint and thought 'what am I going to do with you until I start painting again'? I know...doodle!!!

sketch-book-ian by myra anderson. . .

It's been a long time...hasn't it?  Well, I haven't really been painting lately...but I have been busy doodling and drawing with markers and a bit of watercolor in my sketchbooks.  You already know this but... I think that you should always keep as much of your work (that you don't sell) as you can.  Why?  As I look back on my work I'm like 'when did I do this?' But mostly 'HOW did I do this?!'  And the wonderful 'I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW I COULD DO THAT!'  Question:  has my art gotten any better over these years?  Answer:  Uhh....ohh...humm......

Well, I have been practicing my sketches on every piece of paper! There is some excitement in the air! Project Runway All Stars starts tonight! A good a reason as any to have a fashion drawing party don't you think!
