Frida Kahlo

I love Frida Kahlo's paintings... I don't know why- I just do. I love how clearly she portrayed her inner turmoil and pain.

She was in a horrible accident at a young age and lived most of her life in terrible pain. Also, she was unable to have children, which was one of her greatest desires. Although my pain is not as bad as hers was, I still relate to her pain and her fight to have children.

I love the latino quality to her paintings- that they portrayed her world and how she felt about it.

They don't make me smile, at least not most of them. So I couldn't include them on my Saturday Smiles posts; however, I love her work and wanted to share some.

For more of her story, look here:
