Illustration Friday: Homage

8 x 10 Acrylic on wood

I have always admired Frida Kahlo. I love that she is strong, beautiful and unique in her ideas and art. I have always felt that there should be some Frida in my home, so it seemed only fitting that I create a portrait of her to hang on my walls. She fits perfectly in my home, with her colorful and striking style.

    I really like the way you stylized this. “Prettier” yet still recognizeable..
