"I paint flowers so they will not die."

It took me longer than I intended, hence this post is late but oh well.  I wanted to play around with a favorite icon of mine - the house - trying to apply some of Frida Kahlo's style and elements: bright colors, a folk art style, Mexican motifs, lots and lots of leaves, bright flowers, birds, monkeys, and filling the page. Lots and lots of fun, and I do love her many approaches to the leaf.

Frida Kahlo, July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954. Frida was, among so many other things, the embodiment of one who used art to escape sadness and the difficulties of her life: her disabling accident at a young age that led to an existence of pain and immobility, and the abusive relationship with Diego, her artist-husband.
