One of my favorite paintings of all time is the one I did called "Frida Excitement". It is a 3 ft x 2ft framed art piece with a surrealistic flair. In the oil painting besides a picture of Frida, I incorporated things that were important to the artist. She loved small animals and was known to have numerous chihuahuas and one is represented in the painting along with a jukebox and a Central American plant native to Mexico.
It is now on display and for sale at Belladonna's on Pendelton St. just below Cornell Arms. If you get a chance to see it; please stop by. "Frida Excitement" will only be there until Dec. 15th. This painting had previously shown at Noonah's on Gervais.
