I have always been a huge fan of Frida Kahlo. She was well know for her surrealist self portraits and the love story between artist Diego Rivera. (I can never resist a good love story) I adore her.   If you ever get a chance watch the movie with Salma Hayack. Wonderful movie. 

So many of my favorite artists paint Frida portraits.

Some of my favorites are Heather Galler (Soon to buy one of my own),  LuLu Mypinkturtle ( I bought one for myself) and of coarse Danita.  Go and visit them they are some of my fav artists. Love all the colors.

I decided I would paint my own Mixed Media version of Frida.  Thank you Gloria for your inspiration!!!

Come and visit all the artists at Paint Party Friday!!!

ART ON THE AVE and Paint Party Friday!!!

  I am sooooooo excited I will be in my very first show. I will have my own booth and everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just got the word that I have been excepted.  It is such a dream come true for me.   This is the town I grew up in and  I will have my very first show here.  I remember going to this fair and never thinking that I would be good enough to be in this wonderful show.   Just a few years later and my dream has come true.   This was one thing that was on my vision board.  Thank you Louise Gale for your wonderful Dream Inspire Create ecourse  idea for the vision board, I look at it everyday.  Such a great idea.   See it at my prior post here.  Also I have some other good news but I don't want to say anything until it gets a little closer.  Don't want to jinx it!

Love is Patient, Love is Kind

Commission for Stellani Coleman

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails"

When I was making this commission for a wedding gift, It was about the time of the Royal Wedding and finding out about our friends marriage being over.

The emotions are both so different.

The hopefulness and happiness of the one and the despair and the anguish of the other.

New Prints added to my Etsy!!!

I just got this back from my niece Liz so I could scan it  with my new scanner.  Wow how great is that! It is a larger piece so I could not scan it with my old scanner so I took a photo of it and it just didn't look so great.  But what a difference!
She turned out quite nicely.

I added around 5 more images to my shop. And I will be soon adding some postcards.
Here are the ones that I added.   Feel free to visit my Etsy shop.

Everyone have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
You don't realize how much it means to me when you leave a comment.
Thanks for making me feel great!

Joy to all of you!!
