Friday and Frida

I reworked Frida's neck yesterday. I had to fight the compulsion to make the whole rest of the neck one color. I thought, "Well, it doesn't HAVE to be realistic!" Once I got over this and just let myself play, I decided I liked the result. Ofcourse, it is just like me to keep second guessing what I have already "glued" down.

I also needed to pry up some pieces of dark brown glass that I had attached, thinking I would put the trunks of pines in between the pine boughs. However, after looking through a Frida book, I decided that it was more in keeping with what she painted to have the whole background be covered with the pine boughs. (She had self-protraits where the background is full of tropical leaves = pine boughs.)
