Frida Kahlo by RK Schlueter

9x8"oil on panel. Portrait of legendary Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo, " I paint my own reality" she said. Frida is a force like lightening, like Billy Holiday, Janis Joplin...the list is long of women who inspire me to find my own voice and belt it out.
Thank you for visiting!

seems to me the women you name each knew great pain in their lives - used that to feed their art and used their art deal with pain ... skylarks must sing even when no one is looking up to find them
