'the ballet, the ballerina and the ballerinas!' by myra anderson...




So here I am looking back at some of my earlier pen work! You know, I think the secret is out that 'I love the artwork of Degas!'  Perhaps a lesser known secret is that I love the artwork of Francois Gall (1912-1987).
Also looking back...it may be hard to believe that I used to draw and paint EVERYTHING -  from the apple seed to the applesauce! Like many other artists Francois Gall has a magnificent portfolio of work including portrait, still life, floral, landscape, cafe and ballerina paintings.  Below are a few of his beautiful ballerina paintings.
 

Ahhhhh! So lovely!!!!! Truth? If I could...if I had the technical ability...I would copy his paintings lol!!!! (I saw an artist who makes lovely copies!)  To me it would be very exciting! Right now I am working on my own version of 'dancer with ballerinas'!  And there's nothing more exciting than that!!!!!!
Also...I don't know how you are making it thru the day...
maybe it's one drawing at a time!
 Love and peace to you!

Fascinating your drawings for the ballet dancers! Yes, I can understand your enthusiasm but your style is you and that is what the artist is all about in you!
Greetings Elke

Create with passion and what you love. I think you do that already. Your art is moving and powerful. You have an ease with the human body and how to make it come alive on paper. Have a great Sunday.
