Our lovely Patrice is our host for this weeks drawing challenge
and the very intruiging theme is Frida (Kahlo).
This most incredible woman invented a today so called
"signature look" with her mexican folklore inspired style
with lots of colors and flowers in her hair and sometimes neck.
Together with her "look" and her eyebrows you can recognize
her even if you don't see andy face or else anymore.
So I erased everything but her iconic style elements and its
For this piece I replaced the flowers with colorful bugs and moth
and I think it looks even so good.
And now an old (and unknown) family member turned into
a Frida fan.
Not to forget to mention the incredible film with an amazing
Salma Hayek as Frida. The film is listed in the category
romance and comedy and sometime I wonder if those people
ever watched this movie because I would put into drama.
Because she turned her pain into incredible artwork that's for
sure but I wouldn't want to exchange with her, because of so
much suffer and pain. She paid a high price for her art career.
I can highly recommend this film but it is no easy stuff!
I wish you a wonderful long and sunny weekend!
