The years that followed found Myrna raising a family and working in bank operations, so there was not a lot of time for art. However, once the family grew up and she retired from the banking industry she was again free to pursue her real passion of oil painting.
Myrna is basically self taught but credits some of her techniques to the many books she has read. She has the ability to put on canvas what her mind’s eye sees and her wishes are that many others will enjoy the same vision.
Myrna paints a variety of subjects. As she says “I paint what strikes me at the time”, it may be cactus flowers, landscapes, animals, portraits, etc.” She says “It would be hard for me to be a contract painter; I have to be inspired by something before I can convey it to canvas."
Myrna has traveled extensively. You will find that her art works depict deserts, mountains, the coast as well as Europe, the South Pacific and even wild animal parks!
The majority of Myrna's new works of art are shown at "The Cottage Gallery on Los Rios" in San Juan Capistrano for each of their new shows which occur 6 times a year. The first show in 2017 will be on January 10th.
