Another Frida

I receive many emails asking me to paint another Frida. I was so excited that people were asking me to paint more! I went to the art store and they had this 6x12 deep edge canvases and I got them, beautiful quality. The tension is different because is longer so I had to use the little wooden keys that comes with the canvas to make it tight.
I saw this picture of Frida with a bird and I loved it. I google the picture and I coudn't find it again later. With the image in my mind I painted this Frida.
I just LOVE this cute canvases.
Every time I sell a painting I receive and email saying that the painting is much better in person, I guess I am not doing a good job with the pictures, but I am happy :) it is better than receive the other way around he he.
My Frida now is on ebay waiting to be adopted.

I love this one, Adri!
And it is your fault that I am addicted to crackle! :)
I had tried other crackle mediums and they just weren't working for me. I saw you video and you made it look so easy. Thanks so much for sharing your expertise and beautiful works of art.

She is SO cute! I love your Fridas! It is amazing how they suit your style-- there's a flickr group called 'inspired by kahlo' you must join! I think Frida must be in the air, because Im in the middle of a "Frida Angel". She is so intriguing!

PS: I love your crackle too, I've tried it, but it just turns into a horrible goopy mess...dont know what goes wrong!

I think that working from images in your head often turn out the best art. Your Frieda turned out very nice. Thanks for putting me on your favorites.

I love your new Frida!
I think it's always hard to capture the beauty and charm of original art in a photo. That's why people go to museums:)
Have a great weekend!

Don't you love those wonderful deep canvases? And I know I've said this before, but....the way you paint noses is so great. I have nose envy. Well done, my friend!
