janettmarie and 'venez et etre petite ma rose' . . .

'venez et etre petite ma rose' otherwise known as
'come and be petite my rose'
sketch for painting by myra anderson

I was mentioning to my 'good for the heart art buddy' janettmarie that I was going to try something a little different for the next few paintings.  My last ballerina looked a little too stiff - so I drew this one on regular notebook paper and will transfer it to the canvas to see if I can turn this more loose sketch into a more loose painting.  (I usually draw directly on the canvas.)  I just 'scratched around with a pen' until I drew a basic image that I liked.  I have another ballerina painting for comparison . . .so we will see.
I have to say that JM's current series of coffee cups has been the inspiration behind my 'coffee ladies'.  I started a new canvas today -inspired by this beautiful floral cup!  And now . . . a poem . . .

ahhhh . . .
coffee in a floral cup . . .
janettmarie says it's the stuff . . .
it will make you feel awake-y . . .
don't drink too much -
you might feel shaky . . .
then you can go on your way . . .
painting - and doing good to others
throughout the day . . .
thank you janettmarie for your wonderful advice!

Après une journée de peinture, je suis heureuse de l'évolution de ma toile, mais je suis épuisée, vidée... aussi un moment détente serait le bienvenu accompagné d'une tasse de café pour redonner du tonus, je crois que ce serait bien!
J'ai hâte de voire votre petite danseuse évoluer sur votre toile et enorgueillie de couleurs...
Tout comme vous, je dessine directement sur ma toile...
gros bisous
