Paint Party Frida(y)

It’s PPF and I have a painting to share :)

DSCN1800

I didn’t have a canvas,

so I fused a light cotton canvas

to cardstock using iron-on fusing.

It held up pretty good to my acrylics,

watercolors and pastels.

I have other things in the works,

but it is so very dreary

that the only place to take pictures

is on the bench in the “sun room”

And I can’t summon up the energy to cart them down there.

I haven’t burned the gray sweater yet...

This is the coldest April I can remember.

  9. I often wonder what Frida would think about so many people being intrigued by her portrait and painting her so long after she has gone. It would be an odd feeling, wouldn't it?

  10. LISA! I'm sorry it's been so cold there, I know you're dying to burn that sweater....soon come, I promise!
    In the meantime, let me drool over your beautiful painting- I LOVE it! I think it may be my new favorite of all your work, maybe even over the tarot cards.....suffice it to say that you've outdone yourself- AGAIN!

    p.s. I always put on a gray v-neck sweater before I head into the studio... It has become a ritual for me (kind of like Mister Rogers!ha!)

    i love the gems in frida's hair...
