Nikolas Muray photo manipuleted by me with Photoshop.
I’m just finishing my third painting on Frida Kahlo. This photo of Nickolas Muray has been one of the most I’ve looked in my search for Frida.
Frida Kahlo was a strong woman and a fighter, a fascinating personality full of life, an artist, a revolutionary, a feminist that wanted to change things from his world, from its mysterious emotional world. His paintings take you to another place, a place full of love and confusing and contradictory feelings.
Frida Kahlo celebrated her unique beauty. She dressed in traditional Mexican costumes and wore ribbons and flowers in her long dark braids. She took the time to add the details that made her distinctive in each of her paintings.
Many of her most beautiful paintings show her with her special pets.
