Frida Kahlo is one of my favorite artists. I love her use of color and her love of animals. Over the years she has inspired me and the results have been whimsical Frida pets. Here is my latest inspiration...
I started out with a black canvas for Mr Moose. Something a little different for me and it was fun. I found that it was more difficult to bring the color out, of course, so Mr Moose looks better under a light. I love experimenting with color and can't wait to try the dozens/hundreds of ideas I have going around in my head. Need more hours in the day!!! It would, also, help if I weren't so scattered. I'm one of those. I head to the table to paint, see the cat, stop to talk to it, hear the dryer go off...go down stairs, run across GusGus, play with him a bit...and it's time to get to the shop! Oh well...that's where I usually paint.
I couldn't believe my eyes! Beautiful apple blossoms and daffodil buds surrounded the espresso shop today! I grabbed my camera to document the fact that Spring is very near! I'm thinking a spring flower abstract would be a lot of fun to create!
Tomorrow I will post my latest painting...Mr Moose.
The first time I saw another blogger do a drawing, I thought..."What a fun, great idea!" I want to do that! Well, today is my Birthday and I'm thinking it would be a good day to finally have a drawing. The drawing will be for one of my matte prints of the Fox. All you have to do is leave a comment about a Birthday that was special for you. I'm hoping I can get our Jack Russell, Rory, to draw a name out of the hat on Friday. She's pretty good at tricks.
Our sweet little Oppea decided that she needed her own place. Rudy took the bed under the table with the long tablecloth, Rory has the comfy kennel and GusGus likes the bed under the desk...all Oppea had was a dining room chair...until now. Her new home is private, quiet and warm...she's very happy.
