FEATURED BY OBSESSED WITH FRIDA KAHLO GROUP – 22nd January 2012
Well folks, I am taking a break from pen and ink work and have been playing with my coloured pencils. I have two books about Frida and have seen the DVD of her life twice. I was looking at a photo of a human eye taken by Sean Farragher (Redbubble) and was inspired by the veined pattern. It evolved into this blue background eventually.
Frida, sadly, is no longer with us, but for those of you who admire her work, let me mention that her modern day equivalent is definitely alive and on Redbubble in the person of Helene Ruiz. Seeing Helene’s excellent paintings provided me with the impetus to do this Frida painting. Please take a look at Helene’s work … you will not be disappointed, believe me!
