30 faces in 30 days-An Ode to Women

I'm using a Mixed Media Art Journal to try my hand at these faces.
I did some collaging with teal paint on top before draying in the faces.

Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón was a Mexican painter known for her many portraits, self-portraits, and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico. She dreamt of being a doctor. She was stricken by tragedy. She was in love with artist Diego Rivera, and then some. She is a style icon. She rarely cracked a smile. She was born & died in the Casa Azul.

Georgia O’Keeffe!

  • She was deeply interested in the natural world.
  • O’Keeffe married the art dealer and photographer who propelled her to fame.
  • Her marriage was marked with affairs.
  • O’Keeffe’s most famous works were her flower still-lifes.
  • She never stopped creating.
  • She always wanted to be an artist since she was a child.
  • She loved to draw nature from the backseat of a Model-A Ford.
  • She created more than 200 paintings of flowers.
  • She was 98 years old when she passed away.

One thing for sure-this is taking me out of my comfort zone.  I have loads to learn.  Need more practice!!!
