ballerina blue . . .

6x8 oil on canvas panel

Yes.  This painting is quite similar to the previous painting.  In this one I wanted to try a different size canvas and frame the tutu in a different way.  Next I will be posting some sketches and maybe some progress on some unfinished paintings.  I won't be able to finish any paintings for a while.  Due to a tremendous rent increase Harvey, Tiny and I are packing and preparing to move to a smaller place. This was not unexpected.  It was nice while it lasted but as I was telling the wonderful Texas artist Trudy Gomez 'I'm looking forward to less cleaning and more painting!' My only regret is that I did not get to do what I really wanted to do . . . invite some artists over to paint - perhaps with live models . . . prepare some delicious gourmet snacks . . . and complete it with coffee and fancy cupcakes . . . hey . . . to the future . . . right?

Sorry you have this unexpected move. I always chalk it up to making life more exciting...sometimes boring is nice though. Wishing you well in your new place.

Less is often more. I love your painting Myra. It would be fun to watch a ballet with you.
