Portraits

My friend Greg is a cartoonist/painter/writer/library worker.  Hey, in this world, we all have to wear many many hats!

Many years ago, Greg did a series of paintings where he put his friends into famous works of art.  Since I am a huge Frida Kahlo fan, he did this portrait of me.  (and my cat Toulouse)



It is based on this Frida Kahlo painting.

I wish I could show you the others.  They are so great.  Most recently, Greg did this self-portrait called "Narcissus Ascendancy." 


His version of a "sad clown" painting.   I love all the different ways people find to be creative. It can be endlessly amusing.

Haha!! That is great of you and your kitty in the Frida pose! I had never heard of her until I saw blogs about her.
His self-portrait is wonderful too...his little face in the flower.
