I am going to call it a wrap after this second piece for submission to the 6x6x2012 exhibit. Two solid pieces is better than one/none and I want to move on to another project while I still have momentum. I liked the first one better, but I've decided that was because I had zero expectations for the final product. When I sat down to work on the second one I felt an overwhelming amount of pressure because I liked the way the first one turned out so much that I was afraid this one wouldn't measure up. Silly me. That is something I should work on - having fewer expectations and enjoying the process of making more. I know Frida is somewhat of a cliche subject these days, but I can understand why - the intensity of her work and passion in her life story is very inspiring. She has always been one of my favorites.
"I leave you my portrait so that you will have my presence all the days and nights that I am away from you." -Frida Kahlo
