Long Gone Weekend

The long weekend behind, the paint brushes are flying!

For those of you who have visited my blog before, you'll remember that on the 20th of the month, I try to participate in Nibblefest, a themed art contest organized by a collection of talented artists on eBay. I started my entry last week, and put the final touches on it last night just in time. Every piece of art entered is listed at $0.99! And yes, it is a gamble for the artist, particularly in these uncertain economic times. But, we do it!

The theme this month is "Jungle Life". When I hear the word "jungle" my imagination always takes me to the work of Henri Rousseau. So, my entry is Frida à la Rousseau.

I called it "Jungle Dreams"...not the most creative of titles, but naming them is always the hardest part for me.

As always Wendy, your Frida's are fabulous! I don't always comment much on blogs (and probably should!) and when I saw this one, I just had to let you know how fabulous it is - I LOVE these colors! The $.99 starting bid is certainly a gamble and hopefully that bid will rise and rise. Your work is certainly worthy! Again, love your Frida!!
