Warts ‘N’ All

Here’s the last of my series of 8 silkscreen portraits of women artists that I’m launching this coming Sunday at London’s Art Car Boot Fair in Brick Lane. My final edition is of the iconic Frida Kahlo. I’ve really enjoyed doing these editions; I hadn’t done any silkscreens for about 8 or 9 years and it’s been great to get back into the technique. I’d forgotten how many things can go wrong, but doing all these over the past few weeks has brought it all back to me, warts and all. So tomorrow, signing, titling and numbering the editions, packing them in bags and getting everything sorted to take up to London.

      Thank you, Gale. I have really enjoyed it. I hadn’t used screens for years. Do get your screens out again. I have a lovely dog print of yours which inspired me to try the liquid stencils x

    Rosie – your set of women artist turned out fabulous. Be sure to take a picture or two at the fair. I’ll be interested to know what happens. Best to you !

    I think I first heard of frida Kahlo through a play on the radio, about the episodes Trotsky came to stay. Fascinating life.
