Question: Can I draw an ocean scene with three birds?

I know that I promised you flowers but I was distracted by the above question. I saw this cartoon with these three birds and I thought that the birds were sooooo cute! And if you know me, you know that I did love to do ocean scenes before I 'went all ballerina up in here'.

Question: Can I draw a 'logo' that could represent me on my art 'movies' if I ever find my YouTube password?

Yup! I would also like to congratulate CJ on her new art studio!! (Did she hide my YouTube password?) She has encouraged me to appreciate my little space more. Today I think that I will actually clean it up. (Perhaps I will find my password.)
Also, I recently put a cute little easel and chair by my bed. When I do a drawing I can examine it first thing in the morning. Surprisingly it makes me feel a little bit wonderful to wake up and look at what I think is a cute piece of artwork even if it has 'changed' overnight and I see something that I need to fix.
Did you notice - no ballerina today! Tomorrow I will show you a lady sitting in a chair, next to some f lowers drinking coffee!
What's on my easel by the bed now? Do I really have to tell you? When I woke up this morning I said to myself 'this is soooooo cute!' NOW WHAT IS MY YOUTUBE PASSWORD?

Who loves the ballet too . . . Anatoly Shapovalov 1949 -

What a beautiful and inspiring painting. I have seen other artists create their own version of this painting that I will post later. My question is 'what work of art can I do to show that I was inspired by the color and the beauty of this painting.'

This is not a poem
I am just hungry

I art my breakfast . . .
and then I ate it.
