Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I'll be making Mexican food for dinner, and watching the end of "Frida" tonight (try as I may, I never seem to carve out enough time to watch a movie in one sitting!)

Hmmmmmmmmm.....perhaps a Frida inspired piece is in order soon?

Stay tuned....

I LOVED that movie! I need to watch it again.
Have a great day!

Dear Carolee, you know how much I love every single piece of your artwork.
But please, don´t start painting Fridas. I love Frida Kahlos artwork, I love the movie but there are allready gazillions of Frida paintings.
They are everywhere, with cute little faces, living happiely ever after.
I think that is quiet spooky.
Don´t you think.
I wish you a great day.

That would be great, looking forward to seeing what you create.

Carolee said...

LOL...I should have been clearer....When I say "inspired", I'm not thinking of actual Frida paintings (of which there are indeed plenty), but more of the bright, Mexican, folkloric/surrealist style.....probably a Day of the Dead piece. :)

Carrie, this is the second time I've seen it too, and I love it - Like "Girl With a Pearl Earring" the cinematography makes nearly every frame look like a painting...just beautiful!

Oh Carolee, I should have known, that I can count on you.
A day of day piece sounds great to me.
Happy painting

I haven't seen that movie yet! Maybe I'll try to rent it. Mexican food sounds good....and maybe a margarita.

Enjoy your day!!
