The title comes from what the artist has written on their piece.

This is the second Frida Kahlo piece I’ve found.
I met the artist, Anya, while traversing alleys and parking lots. OMG! She was so neat. She spent time chit-chatting with me.
She said the art would be done by Thursday end. She had another art engagement on Friday. I didn’t think Anya & MSKA, who was assisting with B.G., would make the date. Wednesday rained all day.
She showed me the self portrait she was basing this mural on.
LOVE the hand/glove earrings!!!
I went back Sunday. It’s not quite finished, but I shot it anyway. I don’t know when I’ll get back there.
I adore the way she has Frida emerging out of the wings of a Monarch. When I returned, dumpsters had been moved in.
I shoot them as I get them.

After I did the comic book post, I was inspired to create Super Hero – Princess Blue Holly
For my first try I used the water colour crayons that Gigi turned me onto. It really has a nice comic book look.
Princess Blue Holly is based on the plant by that name (and Holly from House of Heart). Her super powers come from reading up about the plant. Above is my first rough up.
I painted it to look like silver lame. I used pencil, silver acrylic, water colour pen and an extra fine marker for lips and lashes.
I also did a gown using the water colour crayons. It seems more congruous with the opening image of Princess Blue Holly.

There’s so much more to know: how she got her super powers, how she transforms, how she finds villains, how she deals with them, her super healing powers for good guys, etc. I’m working on all that, and one day Princess Blue Holly will be back with new sketches.
Nick Sweetman organized a Butterfly Project in an alley alongside a kids’ park.
It is part of the David Suzuki Butterfly Project
Wish you all had been with me. It was most wonderful and delightful.
These are 2 of the paintings.
