Happy New Year Everyone! I am finally getting back in the swing of things, since I go back to work (school) tomorrow! I painted a few little paintings this week and will be listing them on Ebay soon. There's a girl with an owl in the snow, a girl rescuing a kitty in the snow, and an angel holding a plump little sheep.
Over the holiday break I read a very interesting book about Frida Kahlo. My sister, Jennifer gave it to me for Christmas. Anyway, I just wanted to paint this picture of the Frida and Diego home. Diego had it custom built for them--it is actually two homes, a small blue one for her and a larger reddish color one for him. They are connected by a foot bridge at rooftop. Unfortunately, they seemed to have spent most of their lives hurting each other, but they couldn't live without each other, so this was the set up he came up with. The compound was surrounded by a tall cactus fence. In this painting Frida is contemplating paying Diego a visit. This painting is on Ebay now. The links are at the top of this page.
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
