Frida and La policía

Frida went home after church, and what did she find?
Diego playing house with the La policía  wife.
Frida promptly phoned La policía and reported a
burglary at Diego house, and sat down at her
easel and started to paint, and waited until for all hell broke loss.
I hope you have enjoyed my Frida series, I
enjoyed doing it.  If you want to see all the
Fridas go down below and hit the Frida label
and they will all come up

its all about the boy who loves the girl

Happy Anniversary to the Boy.....

There once was a girl who met a boy. Who married the boy at age 20 and 21. Who have a good life for 16 years then along comes a little baby who makes the boy and girls life even better. Then the little girl grows up and makes her own way in life. Leaving the boy and girl by themselves again, but there love for each other is enduring thru the good and the bad, and has lasted 41 years and hopefully will go for many more. Happy Anniversary to the man who will always remain in my  heart   the boy....who loves the girl......

Its a simple life....

I live a simple life, I always have, I was never
a big party girl, one who had to go out
every night when I was younger.  I was
always content to stay home.  I always loved
to read, and draw, and could keep myself
amused for hours, my sister was completely
opposite of me, she had a different boyfriend
every week, and went out all the time.  When
I grew up, I remained the same, just content
to live my life .  Is it always good to be
content, I have to answer truthfully
no,.  That's the trouble, I  find it extremely
uncomfortable to go out of my safety zone, especially
in my art, but when you are an artist you need to take
chances, you need to sell yourself and your art, so
I need to think big, and live a big life now and then.

Frida the portrait painter

Money was always tight with Frida ,and Diego was
a cheapskate  when it came to Fridas art, ( he always had a jealously streak)
so when she didn't have any money to pay
for someone to model for her  , she resorted
to her painting her own self portraits.

One Trick Pony

This is my version of Picasso "Sleeping Woman"
while taking a break away from Frida last
night I decided to stretch myself and draw
something from the Masters, and this is what came up.
Sometimes I find when I get my inner talking voice
telling me I am a one trick pony, I have to do
something to prove I can do other things, even
if its a bad rendition of a Picasso

In your face.....

more of Frida on the way tomorrow
today I was out all day   having lunch,
shopping for new runners, and new pj's and
what ever else I could find.  So no time
for arting up Frida, but I did have this
in your face flower picture done
and all I used was markers.....I happen
to love the way markers make everything
stand out.

Frida has the blues...

One more Frida to go, then I am done with her.  You are probably
all saying yeah Frida would be quaking in her grave if she
saw these portraits.  Though I must say I always thought
in my mind that Frida was a very serious painter who
never smiled, because Diego was a dud in the sack.

datenight for Frida

Meet Frida 2, tonight she off on a date with Diego so she wearing her pearls,

I am sticking to it.

I admit this looks nothing like Frida,
this Frida has a bit of a chubby cheek look
the scanner makes the skin looks awful
and she looks like she doesn't want her picture painted

face or no face

another work in progress, I   need to
get busy and finish these
First came the head and she
morphed into this girl without a face
which by the way I am leaving
I have 4 different collages which
are all going to be girls with
different hairstyles.these are
all 6x6.  What do you think should
I leave her face blank, or put one
in, now that I look at her and rethink it.

The Bird Series

I am back, but will be hit and miss until September when things
get back to normal, and summer is over, September things
change fast where I live.
I thought I would show you one of the pieces I have
been working on in series, I have about 4 birds series
canvas, all collaged with my homemade paper, and the background
on this one is pan pastel.
I have a head series, with about 5 , one which I will show you
on Tuesday
and One series with is about 8x 11 its a mish mash
I found I like working this way.  I love collaging
though it takes a huge amount of time. Okay
I want honest opinions here, if you think it looks
amertarish I want you to say so, don't pretty it all up, to babyish tell me,
I am not quite finished with these yet.  I would like to know do
you think I should have painted the background on this one,
Okay I expect some feedback bad or good
I am putting on my big girl panties and waiting for it.
