Back to the subject at hand. When I was younger, I never appreciated her art, but as I got older and then saw the film with Salma Hayek, I became a huge fan of Ms. Frida. The colors, the brilliance, the way she lived her life in that "I do not give a rats' ass" way and how she saw life was fascinating. Her difficulties were plenty and yet, she produced things regardless. Sometimes I wish I had that stubborn streak. "I will write though I have laundry, a baby, need to shower, exercise, and many other errands. I will fit it in from 1:22pm to 1:38pm and no one will stop me!"
This is subdued for Frida, but it is one of my favorite paintings that she has done.
Okay, on a side note, I actually dressed up as her one Halloween. I had a bright turquoise skirt with beading and a peasant blouse, my hair up in the braid. I even drew in the unibrow. If I can find a picture I will post it.

I would love to look like this all the time, but at the present, could not really carry it off. File it under "One Day".
