frida kahlo

"Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?"

“I am not sick. I am broken.
But I am happy as long as I can paint.”
"The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to,
and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration."

It is not just because I am a Salma Hayek fan that I love Frida. {Although, the movie is wonderful.} The emotion - the pain- that Frida Kahlo captures in her paintings is undeniably felt by all spectators. She inspires me to be honest and raw in my art. Happy Birthday Frida.
