Today is Mexican artist Frida Kahlo‘s birthday.
I’ve been obsessed with Frida since I was a wee lass.
They all attracted me like a moth to a flame.
Now, when I paint, I often add tiny nuances to my work so that it will be unique to the individual who sees it in person. That is what I learned experiencing Frida’s work for the first time in San Francisco (you can read about my trip here). Things I never knew about her work because I had only seen it in books was now revealed to me. Her paintings blew my mind.
I’ve long considered Frida my muse. I never grow tired of her as my inspiration.
Happy birthday, Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón.
