Frida Kahlo Swap
WoW ! I loved this swap. I wasn't familiar with Frida or her art and it was very interesting to study and learn about her life and art.
The color , passion and pain in her artwork is so interesting. I think I can relate with her artwork because I've had my share of pain. I was in a serious work related accident many years ago and deal with the emotional effects everyday. I don't dwell on what happened , but seeing her art made me understand what she is saying through her artwork. It may seem very dark to some people , but they were her life experiences.
The 4x4 portrait was done by Judie MacawHead , I think she did a wonderful job.
Judie , Would that be Mz. Wee on your shoulder ?
I'm also posting the backside of this portrait , just look at what Judie did.
So colorful and wonderful !
My ATC was created by Kai , it's lovely too. Ms. Kai did a very glittery Frida.
I tried to take a photo of backside of the ATC , but I kept getting a glare.
This is what it said on back .... "
