More Frida. . . this time a postcard.

She's very inspiring to me

and it so happens the theme this week at 

Inspiration Avenue is FLY

so I decided to use one of my favorite quotes.

(Daylight has faded away, so sorry for the dark photo.

Even worse, it's dark with an annoying glare in the upper right corner.)

Replaced the photo with a slightly brighter one.
Still not so great.

Our host this week is Diane of The Expressive Palette

~ a very aptly named blog ~ as she expresses her talent

so beautifully with the art that she posts there.

Check out Diane's blog, as well as the entries

for this week at Inspiration Avenue.

I'm thinking about all the blog posts I would like to do ~

The wonderful postcards I received in our postcard swap,

Pictures I took while vacationing,
 (Yay, at least got the vacation post done! It's one above this one)

Garden photos . . . it's midsummer already!

New paintings . . .

I'm getting around to it, I promise!

Meanwhile, have a lovely weekend!


  1. I had seen this quote when I was researching Frida. It is definitely perfect for this challenge. You paint and draw so well. I'm always, always impressed with your work.

    You have an impressive set of goals and possibilities. I'm confident you will get around to them as time permits.

  2. Wonderful art & quote. I like the way you incorporated the butterfly & bird into the background!

  3. I love that quote - she really is amazing. Love your fly entry and look forward to seeing the rest of what you've been up to.

  4. Great quote, lovely colours & I love the doodle borders :-)

  5. Gorgeous! The elements you've used - the strong colours, the quote and those vibrant red flowers, are the perfect match for Frida :)

  6. I LOVE your "FLY" and can't wait to see what you have going on in the works- I know it will be amazing!

  7. Maggie, dear Maggie, your piece is Wonderful! ~ totally & completely perfect! i love it! and thanks bunches for mentioning my blog!
    XOXO :D

  8. Although I haven't used her image in my artwork, I very muh love her work and have been inspired by it. Blessings!

  9. Quotes from Ms. Kahlo are always so inspiring to me too! This one is particularly nice. I love the use of the light blue with the reds.


I always love to hear what you have to say! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
