The intimate life of artist Frida Kahlo is wonderfully revealed in the illustrated journal she kept during her last 10 years. This passionate and at times surprising record contains the artist's thoughts, poems, and dreams and many reflecting her stormy relationship with her husband, artist Diego Rivera, along with 70 mesmerizing watercolor illustrations. What a treasure to have. I will cherish it.
After purchasing this book I was of course inspired to paint another of Frida Kahlo.
I love that the book includes her love letters to Diego. Some are loving
and some are angry. They had such a stressed love affair.
However, in the end they really did love each other.
I thought it would be great to have her writing a “Love Letter to Diego” surrounded
by the beautiful Sunflowers that he always loved to paint. A special butterfly
keeps her company as she composes her thoughts to him.
With this painting I am including a lovey 10" x 12" framed copy of the complete
love letter that is partially featured in my painting. The english translation is
on the back of the frame. I thought this would be so nice to hang next to
“Love Letter to Diego.”
More to come in this series.
