Art House



This is my entry for this week's Three Muses theme -"Doorway". Part tribute to Frida Kahlo and her love of color  and bold expressions- a bit ahead of her time.  Peeking from a studio doorway beckoning new creations and inspirations to a new generation of Artists.  She always inspires me.....  Frida "paper doll" image from ArtChix, doors and grungyart splatters from Tangie Baxter (at Scrapbookgraphics) and other imagery from Holliewoood at Deviantart.
