More Frida ATCs

I think Frida's art has kept me going through a difficult weekend. Isn't it wonderful that making things takes your mind off your problems.
I have used three of her famous quotes - there are loads more! On the one above I tried to replicate my icicle doll.

Bit radical this one - a landscape ATC (is that allowed?)
Thought I'd keep it simple for this one - I just love the photo.
The full quote for this is..... I never paint dreams or nightmares, I paint my own reality. The quote becomes even more interesting if you look at some of her more bizarre paintings.

Well the DVD finally arrived this morning, so I'll tell you more when I've watched it.

Off now to take mum to the hospital to see dad.

Hugs

Hi Linda,
Your Frida ATC's are wonderful and a lovely tribute to her. I am sure she is looking at you from somewhere up there and smiling at you.
Yes what a facinating person she was inspite of all that life threw at her she produced awesome paintings.
