Frida - 75x55cm

Charcoal, white acrylics, Japanese paper, glue on Stainbach paper


To me Frida looks down and empty. She stares blindly ahead of her, consumed in her own thoughts. She's not the strong, confident women she usually is. And here I guess my own mood slipped through. But isn't that wonderful? How your own mood can influence the outcome of your work?⠀

I hated this work at first because it brought me back to those days. But now I look at it with pride. It still takes me back, but in a completely different manner. Not as a loser, but as a winner. This work is a victory! And I'm sure we all have our personal victories. So keep your head up, no matter what, better days will always come.
