What a woman!

I currently have no power in my house. After a big storm front hit, the whole area is out. This is bad timing because I have been researching one of my favourite artists for the past week and I am Super inspired to get filming my part of the Studying Under the Masters workshop!  I had a fair bit of Frida knowledge already, but I am discovering new elements of her and her artwork all the time. What a woman! What an artist!

I have quite a few workshops all being prepared at the moment. There’s a lot of artwork going on! They are all at different stages of production. They each have a different feel. But they all have that essential element of me. And I’m pleased with that, because that brings me closer to the character and essence of ‘my’ Frida Kahlo than any amount of hero worship and research will. I can stand firmly in my creativity and still stretch and grow, but not lose sight of what I love. It shines through in all I do.

So I need the ‘flippin power back on so I can get filming my painting process for the class! I want to paint Frida. I want to tackle a self portrait… take a breath Jane!

This is some of the info about my part of ‘Studying under the Masters’ .

(Early Bird pricing finishes on Sept 1st)

The artist I have chosen is Frida Kahlo.

As a person Frida inspires and fascinates me. But I feel she has so much in store for me as Artist, and what better way to feel closer to this amazing person than as her ‘Apprentice’?

Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter who created arresting self portraits. I first discovered her for myself  when Madonna started collecting her paintings. She was the first female painter I had ever really heard of. Her life seemed full of calamity and physical difficulty, but she lived a unique life with passion, colour and created whenever she could.

Her work is confronting. It is not traditionally beautiful. But it speaks to me. Her use of colour and nature and ways of incorporating herself in her own work are something I would like to try. I think it will be a liberating experience, and I hope you will join me as we discover more about Frida Kahlo together!

I adore and am so fascinated with her that I am going on a pilgrimage to her house in Mexico City next year. A long held dream is to stand in the spaces she moved through. To see where she painted. I bet the air feels different there.

For those that have followed my Blog for a while, you know that I even named one of the koalas that visited my garden after her ( Frida Koahlo). The Selma Hayek movie of Frida Kahlo’s life is a good starting point if you wanted to discover a little more about  her. It is called simply ‘Frida’.
