Image of Abstracted Architectural Acrylic Painting FRIDA Inspired Purple and Silver

FRIDA is an abstracted narrative drawing/painting, influenced by my recent trip to the Brooklyn Museum to see the Frida Kahlo show whereI immersed myself for several hours. The following evening I was painting, and had these colors left on my palette and rather than throw it away, I often make a small piece of art. I love the depth in the piece and how you can travel in this tiny "suitcase" painting, and it carries the influence of Frida's life in it.

I started with laying down paint on canvas paper using a palette knife and a credit card, and then worked into it with brushes, letting the image take shape and tell its story. This is where we ended up; it is a very magical process when it happens.

I used three colors- silver, purple, and black. As with many of my drawings, the painting changes color depending upon where you stand. Not only is the act of creating the image kinetic, but so is the viewing of it. It is difficult to photograph but it is brighter than your computer screen when you view it in the light.

5" x 5" in size, and is matted in an 8"x8" mat.

Shipped flat as a first class package with tracking between two pieces of mat-board. Shipping included in the price.
