Frida à la Klimt again!

August 24 already! My apologies to those of you who regularly visit my little blog. With the clock ticking towards Cabbagetown Art and Crafts Show, I've been spending long hours at the easel.

This piece is another in my on-going Frida à la Klimt series. I've had this one started since sometime in the mid winter, but just couldn't seem to figure out the deco design until last week. I splurged on this one and used lots of 14K gold leaf from Thailand. It is so delicate and rich; almost buttery in texture.

Back Again

Apologies for these long stretches between posts. I haven't been in my studio as often as I usually am. But I have managed to finish a couple of pieces.

This sweet little Chihuahua is called "Kahlu"; what a great name for a sweet little dog. I did it in acrylics on 5 x 7 in wood for a very nice collector.

The second piece is acrylics and collage paper, another red haired angel.

Frida at Home

It's late afternoon here in my little studio and I'm already noticing how the days seem to be getting shorter. Summer is so fleeting, especially in a northern climate. We've had a wet summer here, not nearly enough sun, but everything is gloriously green and lush. There's the lightest soft breeze drifting in my window; it's all quite lovely.

I've been working on commissions this week. They're not quite ready to share, but in the meantime, I've received a lovely shot of one of my large "Frida à la Klimt" pieces hung in its new home. Many thanks to Catherine for her patronage and for sharing this photo of Frida in her new home.
