🎨 Frida Kahlo 🎨

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.

Wild Life

It’s a sweet, imaginative piece in a parking lot.

I mean, here’s Toronto’s cityscape, CN Tower and all, with a parrot and elephants.

… and a BUNNY!

The wall dints in & out.

BEST PART OF THE MURAL IS THE CAT BELOW

Around the final corner is a trapped elk.

At least I caught his reflection.

Not only was he trapped by a car,

… he was imprisoned, which is how I found the painting. I had to find out how to get a better shot of him. That’s when I found the rest!

Crazy Free Art to Music II – w/ Engagement Congratulations to Christy Birmingham

 Live music and art supples have never been so much fun.

The drawings have been happening since my last Crazy Free Art to Music post.

Thought I’d posted the one below, but I can’t find it anywhere.

This is  Holly, from House of Heart, musing me. It’s a Free Art to Music piece, an early feel  for a Princess Blue Holly. Looks a bit like Harley Quinn, but I still love it!

Holly, again…LOL…I was working on alter ego ideas. Why I thought of turning Princess Blue Holly into a Rose Fairy, I’m not sure? Still, the pencil & water colour crayon came out lovely.

The band was playing and I was going crazy when I thought of Christy Birmingham being engaged. We’ve done more than several posts together on women’s rights. This happiness came out of me!

Garage Door Birds

Love all these birds, but I have a special spot for this sweet blue bird.

You know it’s a Toronto bird, because the CN Tower is in the BG.

A gorgeous duck!

Finally, a Toucan!

Princess Blue Holly

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.

Holly, Gigi, and I especially liked Poison Ivy & Cat Woman. I made the comment that Poison Ivy looked like  Holly, what with the red hair and all. One thing led to another.

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.

Of course she needs an alter ego, so I created Rene Rosso, torch singer. She wears gowns to perform in.

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.
