This blog thing is so much fun!!






I am so excited about and enjoying working on this blog. It is so much fun to share some of my thoughts and some of my art with others. Here are two journal pages that I recently finsihed and posted. It is part of an international collaborative journal project that I am currently participating in with several other women. The theme of the project is "My Favorite Things". I was re-introduced to the art of Frida Kahlo (and she immediately became one of my new favorite things) recently by a wonderful artist and teacher named Randi Fueuerhelm-Watts http://www.randifeuerhelm.com/ in Phoenix, AZ (at Art Unreavelled 2005). Both women---Randi as a teacher and friend and Frida as an artist have inspired me to create and helped me through a creative block. I took two classes with Randi and just fell in love with her as a person, her art and her journaling processes. I have been researching Frida Kahlo since coming home from Phoenix. I have also fallen in love with her. The story of her life and and her unbelievable art have impacted me as an artist and as a person. Thanks Randi for opening my eyes to Frida Kahlo and to your world of journaling.

I LOVE Randi! I have all of her available zines and the Kahlo journal! Whoot! You have good taste! AND you are so lucky to have met her in person!

OMG! Another Frida lover! I have been the hugest fan since I saw an exhibition of her work at The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, gosh, what...13, 14 years ago??? I love her for so many reasons...

I have collected lots of Frida things, and my study is essentially a "Frida Kahlo" gallery!

Anyway...love your blog, and your work! Think I'll save this to my favorites!
