"Check Out My Melons" Frida Inspired LFB

Well, you can tell that painting is not quite my forte, but my sister Elise's first love is Fine Art, and she wanted to bring some new concepts to In My Vintage Room with an Artist of the Month inspired LFB swaps. This will be the first one she hosts and I hope she gets a good response. All I really know about Frida is uni-brows and bizarre expressions of sexuality...so this was quite a challenge for me, and I'm not "thrilled" with my results, but it broke me out of the vintage box and I think that next time will go smoother.

  1. Tabitha! Love your altered book cover. They are one of my favorite surfaces to work on. Also; love the fact that you challenged yourself with the overpainting and the Frida influence. Wonderful first-time effort! Keep leaping!
