Monday Artday: frida kahlo

After a long, five year absence and an awkward “passing of the baton,” the Monday Artday blog has resurfaced like the Phoenix (the mythical bird, not the city in Arizona). I received an email from the original host and I have accepted the invitation to participate. So, here’s the deal: much like the venerable Illustration Friday, Monday Artday will present a topic each Monday and illustrations to fit the theme will be posted throughout the week until the next topic is offered. A weekly winner will be chosen and lavish cash prizes will be awarded. (I may have imagined that last part.)

So, here we go, my first entry for┬áthe eagerly anticipated return of Monday Artday…

I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best.

The first inspirational suggestion is the work of Mexican surrealist Frida Kahlo. Since I haven’t picked up a paintbrush in years, I offer a tribute to the late painter in my artistic tool of choice – Photoshop.

Hopefully, Monday Artday will continue to grow, thrive and attract a new group of participants, as well as those who previously submitted their fine examples of creativity.
