The framed page opens up to this second spread.
I liked how Diego is blocked out of the picture when the page is turned.
That may not have been intentional at the time, just something that I noticed after it was completed.
I Love (don’t you think Love should begin with a capital “L”, I like it that way!)…OK, I Love that about creating and not thinking too much, wonderful discoveries and seemingly hidden meanings are revealed.
A generous and talented arting friend, Karen Furbish, shared that really special silver doily with me. Mind you, I don’t always remember phone numbers, but that sort of detail stays with me…..
I really enjoyed working on Chris’ book and am so glad I at least have a few photos to remind me of it. Taking pictures made it a little easier to part with.
“I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best.”
…………..and another quote from Frida, she has lots of good ones
“The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.” ~~Frida Kahlo~~
