Pages from my Art Journals

Thank you so much for all your kindness and sympathy shown in the previous post, feel so blessed to have so many blogging friends.

This week am showing a few more pages from my art journals.


Frida, worked in acrylics, oil pastels and napkins.


Frida, (worked in pencil) in 1923,  in her second year as a pupil at the National Preparatory School.


Fairy Frida......worked in coloured pencils and gold gel pen.

 

and one thats NOT Frida...........worked in oil pastels and liquid pearls

The top and the bottom pages can be entered into the Mix it Monthly Challenge this month which is Crazy Dresses, although they look quite normal to me and all of the Frida's can go into the Art Journal Journey Challenge.  Also my entry for Paint Party Friday.

Wishing you a lovely week, take care of yourselves.  Hugs Annette xx

Another amazing trio of Fridas - I love the pencil sketch, it really captures the drama and intensity of her whole expression so perfectly. Fantastic pages.

Makes me want to try Frida too. They all have a sweet, soft, contemplative look. Very beautiful!

sheila 77 said...

These are such beautiful sensitive paintings from the intensity of the first to the ethereal quality of the last.
How clever to paint a Frida portrait in three different styles, but all recognisable as Frida.
