Paint Party Friday: Fridalicous!

Wow, this week FLEW by!  Last weekend was jammed packed for me.  Within 72 hours, I  went to a beautiful 50th Wedding anniversary party down in Visalia, Calif, a college graduation party back in Sacramento, the following day, and finally, ending out the long weekend by a way overdue Rucafest reunion with some O.G. homegirls that I haven't seen in what seemed like ages.   Oh, and we squeezed in "Hangover 2" as well.   That movie is sooooo  badddd.  and I admit, I laughed my head off.  If you haven't seen it, let me warn you, it is hecka raunchy, but, nonetheless it was funnay!

Anyhoo,  I wanted to play this week in Paint Party Friday. If you haven't had a chance to play yet, go check out their blog!  A great way to work on your painting skills, and make some new friends in the process.

Since most of my current paintings are in process, I busted out this oldie but goodie.  This image was wood burned on wood, and painted with acrylics, as well as layered with mixed media goodness and sealed in encaustic wax.

 

::sigh:: I guess I will never get tired of painting mi Frida!
Happy PPF everyone!
Don't forget to visit the awesome art auction at Recuerdo Mi Corazon!  Lots of beautiful and talented artists donated  beautiful and amazing art and shrines!

Frida in a Victoria's Secret push up bra - how can you not love it?

SHERI C said...

She is bold and maybe a tiny bit saucy? Or is it more a confident attitude? HAPPY PPF!

Magpie said...

Why stop painting something (or someone) who inspires such lovely art. Encaustics are somthing that I WILL try someday. Happy PPF!
