'red to the purple degas?' by myra anderson painter of the ballerina sketch . . .

My dearest Helen,
if you recall, i rather boasted in my last post about how i was going to reinterpret - if you will - this degas.  well my dear, here is as far as my limited skills could take me.  it was a fun painting - but for now - i am done - or rather - done for . . .

oh Helen - i don't care how simple a degas sketch or painting looks - it's very hard for me to copy my beloved degas. 

i got a bright idea!  my idea is to paint modern day women in dresses and heels using degas' colors and composition.  i got so excited about this idea that my pulse began to race - or maybe it was . . .
chocolate salad?
because the other day someone gave me some unsweetened chocolate . . . it tasted nasty . . . so i got the bright idea to add sugar, cinnamon,  butter and raisins to melt and blend with this chocolate.  it was soooo good - but maybe next time i should eat a salad. 


with love for all of  yall,
myra

Chocolate salad... can't be anything wrong with that and certainly looks beautiful! Love the ballerina composition/crop too.

I rather like your version of Degas's dancers. Very lively painting and those long exciting gloves make a nice change from the original thing. Keep eating those salads,,,the chocolate one looks sooo good! I wish a fabulous Year 2015, Hugs

I think you created a beautiful painting inspired by Degas. The colors are gorgeous and there is a fantastic energy about this piece.
