Autumn Mood

Today is rainy and cold, cold, cold! And in my mind that leads to thoughts of Halloween, All Saints Day and Mexico's Day of the Dead.

I have always liked the idea of honoring our ancestors, including them in our day to day life in a natural and real way. That led me to thinking of Frida, one of my favorite women. Brave, strong, a free spirit and such an inspiration to any aspiring female artist.
So with that in my heart today I decided to start a series of portraits and who better to start with than Frida! Here is the preliminary sketch on paper. So far I like it! Now to choose the beginning colors and sketch the outline on canvas.
