July 6, 1907- July 13, 1954
When I think of how important it is
to be self expressive through out artwork...
there is only one artist that comes to mind
At the age of 18
was in a devastating bus accident,
that left her with a lifetime of pain.
While bed-ridden in a body cast she began to paint,
addressing the issues of her fractured body
the pain that was inflicted upon her.
underwent more that thirty operations in the course of her lifetime.
Her self portraits were her main subject.
Frida's paintings were related to her experiences with both...
Life holds many issues...
It's not always pretty.
It is through self expression, that we can work it out.
Having the courage to bring it forward...
recognize it and own it.
As an artist,
someone who can relate to daily pain...
When I think of, who do I admire, as an artist...
only one name comes to mind!
This is for a swap I am participating in.
Lady in a Hat
If there was anyone I could bring to a party...
IT WOULD DEFINITELY BE
Since I am on the subject of Frida
I want to share with you
this wonderful find!
Over this weekend...
My husband and I took the family out to lunch.
We strolled around afterwards and came across
this charming little thrifty/vintage shop.
What a sweet treasure I found!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
