This is my "Fall Frida". One more Frida and then that is it for a long time again.


She is up on ebay.









We spent our Saturday at a "Pirate Fest". I have never seen so many pirates in my life. I could not tell the regular people from the actors. It was really an amazing event and very fun. Lots of good people watching for sure. We will have to make it back next year.


They had a scavenger hunt for the children. One item on the list was a feather from the parrot rescue tent. Here is Rose holding one.





Here is Nino with one of the most real looking pirates in the
middle. I am thinking on a regular day I might cross the street if I passed this man on the sidewalk if you know what I mean. Very interesting poeple and it really brought you back to what it might have been like.







Here is another painting I did this weekend. It is a big 16X20. Not sure what I might do with it yet. I will need to find a box if I list it.


Hmmmm, I will have to think about that one.

So your all Frida'd out huh? lol
I got like that a while back, I got addicted to painting Frida's and painted tons of them, then all of a sudden the thought of painting another Frida gave me chills ;)

I absolutely adore your big painting, the houses are fantastic!!
I am also very jealous of your pirate day out, i'd love to do something like that!!

Hugs for you

This is sooooo sweet Jennifer! All of the detail, I love the curtains, the girls in the wagon, oh the houses and little cherub heads...positively adorable!! Just a suggestion...when i ship paintings that big i just bubble wrap the heck outa them and then wrap with thick brown packaging paper and really sturdy packing tape. It is soooo much cheaper than when you ship with a box and they all have seemed to arrive safely thus far (mmmm...better knock on wood) : )
