Like most artists I know, I love Frida.
I studied her in school, read the books, saw the movie and 
last year Val & I went to her great show at the Bowers. here.

Today I came across an old photo ...

Everything about this photo, to me, is perfection.
So if that's true, why mess with it? 
A valid question.
Because I can, without harming the beautiful original. 
And, because I get to play and learn at the same time.


I flipped, cropped, posterized, desaturated, drew, 
colored in layers, having fun all the way ...

Photoshop people often ask about layers ... above is 3.

Playing and experimenting ... above is 5 layers.

I stopped at 8 layers.
The hard part is knowing when to stop.
Easy, I have laundry to do!


I really appreciate your stopping by,
I'd love to hear your thoughts or suggestions,
just me here doing laundry!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead.

A smile for Friday ...
