Frida in mixed media




I have been wanting to do a Frida painting after watching the movie a few times last week. I have also been itching to do mixed media so here is what I came up with. The saying around her is " Why do I need feet when I have wings to fly". I love Frida so much I don't know if I want to let it go.

  1. It's great Joji. I too watched Frida a couple of time this past week. I never tire of seeing the movie. I'm sending for a documentary through PBS on Frida and of course the real Frida is shown in the documentary. I'm looking forward to that. I love your painting, it's beautiful.

  6. I did my first Frida painting last week too, but she didn't look quite right so I kept on layering the colour and eventually she moved away from the intended portrait. I think she looks like Minnie Driver now! You have a great style. Really nice piece.
