Frida Told Me to Paint Her

I had a very vivid dream about Frida Kahlo. We were talking and she said "no seas pendeja, pĂ­ntame" - "don't be stupid, paint me". When Frida tells you to do something, you do it, even if it's in a dream. I've painted four Fridas so far: three watercolors and one acrylic.

These photos show the process when painting "Frida in the Sky with Diamonds"  Enjoy!

Where the Magic Happens

New Studio space! New beginnings! My studio mate, Liam Cuzner and I will be moving into a new studio space in the beginning of March. It's a beautiful open space in the heart of Portland. We are super excited! Liam is an amazing multidisciplinary artist that I met while attending PNCA. Check out his work,  take a look here:
