Snow Owls and Frida

I have two new paintings to show you! We had a couple of snow days from school this week so I have had more time to paint. The first one is of two girls who found three little owls out in the snow. If you look close, it has lots and lots of texture!

I still can't stop thinking about Frida and her colorful life--I just read a book about her and watched a documentary (The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo)--I recommend it--Netflix has it. is another painting of Frida with a parrot. Sometimes Frida had quite a little mustache going and you can see it on my painting. I will list both of these tonight. Have a great wintry day~~

Oh I just love them boith but especially the owls that were lucky enough to have the girls find them. I have never ever done a Frida. I think I may give that a go!

The two young girls sheltering the owls is so tender...and I adore Frida, moustache and all *smile*

How wonderful to find three baby owls in the snow.

Ahhhh, I like that. There are gazillion of Frida- paintings, with happy looking pretty Fridas, with sweez little animals in her arm and flowers in her hair and everything is coming up roses.
Your Frida is different. She is not only the first one I saw (!)with her little moustache but her face looks burdensome. I really like it
