Inspiration Avenue challenge site where the theme is Frida Kahlo. I decided to recreate her wonderous portrait in a sort of "Frida" setting complete with monkey, antlers and some of her own journal words. Her "Anima" or inner spirit was often depicted in her paintings with organic imagery from nature; some very beautiful and other imagery was often strangling or entwined lending to her thoughts of being trapped or in pain or despair. Truly an artist who spoke with her brush; the good the bad and the ugly. Imagery credits go to PaperWhimsy, Veronica Spriggs and Holliewood and Finecrafted designs at Deviant Scrap.
