Weekly artist exploration/journaling series: Week 1 Part 6 SELF-PORTRAIT #FridaKahlo #arttherapy

WEEK 1 PART 6: Frida Kahlo

I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best. – Frida

Today we’ll do a self-portrait in Frida’s style.

But not trying too hard.  Don’t use a mirror.  Just muse.  It’s not about being Frida on the outside, but on the inside.

Last spring, I made my muse Jocelyn Louise into Frida:

Recall my daughter dressed as Frida Kahlo at SFMOMA:

Since my subjects have always been my sensations, my states of mind and the profound reactions that life has been producing in me, I have frequently objectified all this in figures of myself, which were the most sincere and real thing that I could do in order to express what I felt inside and outside of myself. – Frida

Next artist:

PICASSO!
