For my new painting "Frida's Shoes" I used my Frida Kahlo shawl for the background, making sure her face showed so the title would make sense. Of course, the face is distorted by the folds in the cloth. More interesting for painting and drawing! Visits to the local Goodwill provided wild shoes which I laid out on the shawl. Don't expect the shoes to look like the photo.. I will be able to use my imagination to design shoes I think Frida would love.
The photo I liked best.
The photographer.

My Goodwill finds!!! For those that don't know every other Saturday is half price day at Goodwill! See you next week!

This blog is set up for myself and any viewers who are interested in my painting process and progress of my Frida Kahlo series of paintings. I may also add some of my pen and ink drawings and their progress. Depends on how things go.

I am posting my previous Frida paintings. "Ode to Frida" was juried into the AZ Watercolor Assoc. Spring Show and "The Eyes Have It" was juried into the West Valley Art Museum's summer show. Some of the others still need work mostly on the Hands. Always a problem for me even after a couple of semesters of life drawing.
