Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Another day has flown by. I went to a friend's, and we were busy sewing carnival costumes. Slowly, slowly, we are getting there, I think we will soon have them finished. It's fun finding new ideas all the time, changing direction here and there and making alterations. Earlier in the week I sewed a pink satin rat for a friend who is going to carnival as a pink punk, and that was fun, too.
For 'Inspired by the masters' at Art Journal Journey I have one more Modigliani piece. This time I chose the portrait of Diego Rivera, the husband of Frida Kahlo. Modigliani painted it in 1914. For the background I used another brush wipe and experiment page in A3, to which I added some more colour with sprays, and stamped onto the wet paper with a background stamp. The portrait was once again painted on a separate sheet using water colours and pastels. It was fussy cut and then glued to the background. I chose a quote from Frida Kahlo this time : 'I have suffered two grave accidents in my life, one in which a streetcar knocked me down. The other accident is Diego. Diego was by far the worst'. Their relationship was filled with quarrels, separations and reunions, but neither seemed able to live without the other.
Today started off cool and very misty:
Here is the pink punk rat; her name is Ratty:
