I’ve always had a fascination with Frida Kahlo. She was not a classic beauty by any means, but there is a depth and intensity to her portraits that draw me in and ask many questions. Is there beauty within or am I just seeing the pleasure side of pain. Frida suffered lifelong health problems. Many of her health problems were the result of a traffic accident she survived as a teenager. Recovering from her injuries isolated her from other people and this isolation influenced her art, many of which are self-portraits of one sort or another. Kahlo suggested, “I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best.” She also stated, “I was born a bitch. I was born a painter.” Maybe I am attracted to bitches or painters or painters who are bitches. 😉 Or maybe I see a bit of myself in her as I know great physical pain and the obsession to create constantly…enough to drown it out. Whatever the reason….I see immense beauty in her face and her work. I know I am not alone in my fascination as she is one of my BEST sellers.

Today is a “play day” which means I will not be spending hours in front of the computer. Instead I will be doing some things that I love to do like bike ride with my Hubby and creating just for fun. I am putting a new piece over our fireplace. 🙂 Enjoy your day everyone!
