The theme at the Three Muses this week is "Inspirational People", and for me one inspirational person is Frida Kahlo. Her inspiration is more than her art; she created many beautiful works but some were disturbing and dark- but all were honest and from her life experiences. I love the fact that she created art from objects around her- sometimes only at arm's length while bed -ridden (resulting in alot of self portraits). I enjoy that although a consistant theme of her art was based in pain - she always used flowers, birds, and animals to bring life and hope to her work. She was a strong and bold female artist who stood amongst all of the predominantly male artists of her time and she never held back with her work despite strong criticism - truly an artistic warrior! This is a digital collage that I made using a rubber stamped image of Frida (Lost Coast designs) on fabric with mexican trim. I added diary text and a white flower photo from my yard .
