Art Love: Frida Khalo

Dear Frida,
How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways….

I mean, really.  How wonderful was this woman?! I love her fearless voice, strong mind and independence.  Her strength and her vulnerability and how she so honestly depicted both in her work.  I love her haunting imagery and unapologetic bi-sexuality.  I love that she drank and cursed as well as any man and I even love her unibrow.  I love that she knew who she was and never lost sight of that.  She said “I was born a bitch.  I was born a painter.”  Here are some of my favorites of hers…

“I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best.”

The Dream

“I hope the exit is joyful and I hope never to return”

Xoxo, Jenna
