Framed Art by Faridi

Three watercolors by Faridi McFree.  For Faridi,  paint and mat color were equally important in the presentation of her Healing Art.  She was a strong believer that color affected mood.  The text added to nearly all of her artwork was meant to be repeated as a mantra,  not only while viewing the art,  but many times throughout the day.  The final figure is most likely Bob Dylan,  who was often painted wearing a flat-brimmed feathered hat.  Here he is portrayed without the hat.

One of Faridi’s first jobs was as a flight attendant for Eastern Airlines. At the table, from the camera’s point of view, a statue of the Greek goddess, Hebe, appears directly behind Faridi.  In the large b&w group photo, see if you can find her.  Hint: She loved being the center of attention.
