Frida and the Wall of Miracles

Frida and the Wall of Miracles - Art by Regina Lord

Wall of Miracles
Acrylic on 18 x 24 canvas
(sold ~ thank you!)

I was looking around my room, the other day, and noticed I had no paintings of Frida. I love it when I sell a Frida painting, because that means I get to paint another. One of my most favorite subjects (if you haven’t already noticed).

One might think that I am a bit obsessed, but I can’t help it. I recently watched a PBS special about her (for the second or third time) and also watched Frida, the movie again (with Selma Hayek — watch instantly on Netflix). So, I was feeling very inspired.

The word milagros (religious folk charms) literally means miracle.  I would think with all of her suffering, Frida had hopes for many miracles.  This wall of milagros is for her.

    when i was younger i didn’t understand the obsession with her. i couldn’t figure out why should would be so head over heels for Diego and I just thought she was overrated. remember i said i was young? ;o) i took an art history class and had to write a paper on her- i finally got it. i wish she was still alive and painting. such an extraordinary, painful, heartbreaking, emotional and wonderful story all rolled up into her life. i love your paintings of her!
