Frida Kahlo

I'm a big fan of Frida Kahlo. I find her life fascinating, her work moving, and her style inspiring. A little while ago I read The Secret Life of Frida Kahlo, and a lovely blog reader recommended I read The Lacuna.  I just did, and I loved it!  It inspired me to do a portrait of Frida, which is something I've been meaning to do for awhile.  

It's collaged, but not in my traditional children's style.  I had a lot of fun doing it, and think I want to further develop my portrait style.  One day I'm going to visit the Frida Kahlo Museum, which happens to be the iconically house where she grew up.  It's on my bucket list!  

And see my Society 6 shop for some products featuring this Frida Portrait!
