Artist's description:

'The Lover...' is an original artwork in inks and pencil on hand stained paper measuring 135mm x 185mm in size.

The quote is by Mexican self-portrait artist and feminist icon - Frida Kahlo.
never a truer word spoken in my opinion.

'Take a Lover that looks at you like maybe you are magic...'

I stain the heavy weight water colour paper myself and the result is always unique and perfect at the same time. I then work on top with water soluble inks and water repellant inks which give opposite effects but the opposites combine to create the perfect result. This work is delicate yet strong...there is strength in the subjects pose, yet silent contemplation too...the perfect combination.

I absolutely adore her.
