Oh Frida

Oh Frida.  I admire her for her bravery, she displayed her pain and frustrations openly, she was troubled and criticised most of her life.  Such a uniquely beautiful woman. So I attempted to paint this art icon. I know this is nothing like Frida not even close, but it was fun to paint her and while I painted I read about her life in an attempt to get to know a bit about this extraordinary woman.

Spanish girl

Spanish girl was an easy start for the year, after a long break I always feel like I need to start with something not too challenging I need an easy going piece….something that just flows with no stress. It’s a small canvas and I love the background color and the flowers.

Spanish girl reminds me a bit of Frida Kahlo
