this is beautiful! very frieda kalo (can't spell).
though i've a sneaking suspicion the camera isn't doing the colors justice--

They are pretty close but it does wash out a bit because of the flash. The upper half is more true color for some reason. She is in fact kind of gray, dead you know?

hmmm- if i may be so bold to offer some friendly criticism...?
she looks very green to me, so she seems sick. what do you think of having Bhutto in bright "alive" colors" while the background is the dismsal dead you have now. a splash of life and hope in an otherwise depressing world.
too cliche perhaps?

I understand - but you see, she is dead in my picture.

zchto me it's ironic you would make a conscious decision to do that because i was always getting reemed on for painting people with "dead" colors (unintentionally)

what is the medium of the painting and the size of it?

Paulina said...

It's acrylic paint on canvas board. I'm sorry, I don't remember the size off the top of my head. Maybe 18x20"?
