I always enjoy reading the bio's of artists. I think Frida's bio is one of the most interesting of all.
She was determined to paint, even if she had to do it in bed, hence the bed in this painting.
The two portraits on the wall are self portraits. She painted herself more than any other subject as she knew herself the best.... interesting. 
Frida loved monkey and birds so I wanted to fill her Mexican style room with parrots everywhere.

Frida was riding in a bus when the vehicle collided with a trolley car. She suffered serious injuries as a result of the accident, including a broken spinal column, a broken collarbone, broken ribs, a broken pelvis eleven fractures in her right leg, a crushed and dislocated right foot, and a dislocated shoulder. Also, an iron handrail pierced her abdomen and her uterus , which seriously damaged her reproductive ability.
Her mother had a special easel made for her so she could paint in bed, and her father lent her his box of oil paints and some brushes.
Using personal experiences, including her marriage, her miscarriages , and her numerous operations, Kahlo's works are often characterized by their suggestions of pain.
