Frida is an Emotion

 In Cloth Paper Scissors, Creativity, Frida Koahlo: A Koala Story

I have a review on the new Distress Stain Sprays over at the Cloth Paper Scissors blog today. Do you really need more sprays? Probably not, I know I don’t! But I have Rainbowitis, and the distress colour range is just so beautiful ( hello Tea dye, Antique Linen), so I’m willing to risk too much of a good thing.

When I sit down to create, I rarely know what is going to happen. I have a general idea, and maybe a feeling for what colour or art materials I want to use. first. And life just goes from there.

I am thinking about Frida a lot ( part of my brain has a little Frida shrine set up with flowers and candles) so it’s little wonder that she keeps making appearances in my artwork. Mr. Angus refers to her as ” the lady with the eyebrows.” Yes. the eyebrows. But so much more. So, so much more…

she represents a feeling to me… an emotion.

    Hi Jane, I just discovered you on youtube yesterday. I was so inspired by your whimscal faces. I started draw some. Not as bad I thought they would be. I will be traveling to Sydney form the US in January through February 2015. My Daught and her family live there.

    Will you be there by any chance for anything? I Would love to see you and maybe a class or lecture.
