Zelda Fitzgerald


Zelda Fitzgerald is one of my favorite authors.  Even her husband used her diaries for his writings in his claim to fame as a famous author.  She was brilliant.  Her star shone so brightly and then was put out so quickly.  I have several sketches of her, this is one of them.

Paint Party Friday has so many different artists. Thank you Kristin and Eva.
Blessings,
Janet

  15. I am going to have to look into her writings (her paintings are fascinating)... I read The Great Gatsby by her husband, but never anything by her... I'll have to check it out (I'm always looking for recommendations, so thank you!)
