'A B C and 1 2 3!' 'Four steps up and two steps back!' by myra anderson...

Art is easy...until it's not! For a while I was doing well! Drawing poodles over here...drawing poodles over there...and then one day...I couldn't draw a poodle at all. 
I was like 'what?!'  And not like a child but like a full grown adult...I thought...I am quitting art forever!  But there was something wrong with that declaration.  If you know me...and I think you know that I quit art forever two, three...six...ten times a year.  So this time I didn't even take myself seriously.
So what to do? I changed the subject for a while by drawing ballerinas and quietly drawing poodles in a notebook until - and I will - get it right. A poodle on a piece of paper will not defeat me. (Or maybe it will and then I will quit art forever!)
'oh day!' 'woof!'
Meanwhile...I did the painting above about a month ago.  I am trying to give you that great pansy one way or the other lol!  I was inspired by the artist Christine Schwimmer.  I love what she said quoted below.  Her work is beautiful, inspiring and expressive.

I to love your style. and I also love how you introduce to me to other artists. Your poodles are so great and creative. Every day I self talk
myself down from just giving everything in my studio away and just quitting.
Its nice to hear other people have the same thoughts (lolo) I wonder if Picasso every had that thought, I doubt it, he seemed like arrogant guy.
