GOTHIC ARCH - FRIEDA KAHLO

Well, it must be well over a month since i did any real artwork, and boy have i made up for it today.

I've started altering 2 jigsaw pieces, one large (kindly sent to me from Maureen) and one medium size.

Gone back to altering my bus shaped board book, which has wheels on. The front cover should be finished tomorrow.

Made an assemblage angel, but it needs one thing to finish off, which i'm waiting on from Hongkong, So will be probably 3 weeks before i can show you.

BUT i did manage to complete one project entirely today, and that was my first ever Gothic Arch.
I succumbed to the Frieda Kahlo look, which a lot of people have done in the past, but i felt it was something i needed to do for myself. Plus it was great to use such bright vivid colours, that represent Mexico. There seems to be a lot of 'brown' stuff going on everywhere, so thought i would brighten up everyones day with some 'serious' colour. lol.

Would love to have a go at making a gothic arch book, but that will have to wait until after the end of June, when i will be exhibiting my work at Chesterfield. This was postponed from April, because of my moving home. So have to get some serious work done for that.

BOY ITS GREAT TO BE BACK IN THE SWING OF THINGS.

I love this. We were fortunate to be in Mexico once at Halloween or their day of the dead and this reminds me of the artwork and images - Really vivid.
