10.5.11 Frida

I was in the studio working on a large painting today. Having resolved to do a postcard painting since it has already been a week since my last post, I looked around for inspiration. I spied Frida on a bag that I had used to carry in some supplies. Then I used my fancy smart phone to look up some reference images. I used details from two sources—a photo of Kahlo and one of her self portraits.
This illustration also looks a bit like my sister Shannon, but that was not intentional.
Gouache, 6" x 8"
