Two years ago, I visited the beautiful place Frida Kahlo called home. Casa Azul was such an inspiring place. Standing in front of her easels, her painting window, brushes and paints, seeing all her mixed media, jars full of glass glitter, I could envision her, brush in hand.
I don't think she ever imagined she would influence so many of us later in life and I can see even more generations being inspired by her as I watched my daughter, in awe of her work.
I wanted to depict her happy, bright colors and the luminescence of her home and gardens by painting over glass with alcohol inks.
Shine on Frida! We love being inspired by you!
“Si actuas como si supieras lo que estas haciendo, puedes hacer lo que quieras.”
