'patch work draw-ma' by myra anderson...

Last night PR was a little rough.  They had to create a garment for the everyday woman - in this case the members of the crew. But I'm sure (I think) that Nicole and I would agree that they voted the right person off.

Anyhoo, I love realism, I love expressionism and everything in between.  In expressionism you can even have crazy shapes and orange shoe shadows. And of course in art...you can use a lot of color or make full use of one fantastic color like the artist Sandra Flood below.  She can take dabs of paint and make it look like a woman who can't wait to get home and eat her 'lobster fried rice'! This painting is called 'take out'.

Love the red next to the green and the patterns you use are always WONDERFUL!
I enjoyed checking Flood's work and agree with you...good stuff!

PS. I still also like the green shoes!!!

That pose is just so perfect and I am loving the art by Sandra Flood and the shoes you painted that match her painting. Not sure if you intended that, but it's cool.

I've missed being here. Hugs
