My New Frida ~ Mi Frida Nuevo

Last Sunday I attended the Artists' Reception at the Art Center and was encouraged by some very nice compliments of my Frida. It was a blind buy so I don't know if the recipient of my Frida liked her or not. I feel like calling her and offering her the twenty dollars back if she doesn't want it. When I say this people often say well just paint another one. It isn't in my nature to be repetitive. I am always looking for new challenges. Anyway I decided to do a new Frida and this is what I came up with. the last picture is of my first Frida. This was a mosaic project and it was really a cool exhibit.
I feel bad I haven't been blogging. I guess I like reading better than I like writing. I've got to run to the school and help my fifth graders with math. Happy day to all!

Such a beautiful relationship you have with your mum, I am so pleased. To sit and both relax like this is great! I want to be more like this then it doesn't matter who called round.
Happy creating and reading and bless you both!

Thank you so much, I truly enjoyed looking at all the beautiful icons, oh there are so many extra special paintings. I think there was and craze for this then all those years ago.
Thank you for taking time to look for these. I think I will be staring at these paintings now forever.
Some of them have so many members in their paintings, must of took them a long time to complete, but of what a beautiful feeling they must of had when they could stand back and look at what they had made.
I think looking at these paintings I have a design for a new eye shape. Great this is a relief!
I am looking at the mouths also. But would like to keep my one line nose, it reminds me a little of Picasso's paintings. Finding the same eyebrows on the painting I have placed on my blog, helps me with these. Plus the titled head and halos.
I have it sorted?
Thank you so much, the journey you took as helped me immensely.

Hugs and luv and a BIG THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Heidi,
I love your frida's. I am with you on the repeating thing but have been finding that a collection of works similar in subject is okay. each one will be different so it is all good in the end.
What ever you paint it will be wonderful.
