I just participated in a challenge dedicated to this amazing artist of all times, Frida Kahlo. I didn't want to go along the way without blogging about her.
I don't want to write that much, but I do want to share this quote of hers, which in a sense, tells me that she wanted to share her pains and feelings through her art to give a statement. She was so so strong! She didn't give up painting despite her pain; instead she painted to get away from it and to overcome the fears she had. She is telling us to keep going despite the adversities, despite the hurtful situations in life!
Spanglish team and Etsy Owls team from Etsy got together to embrace this amazing artist and to give a call to all members to participate in making an art piece inspired by her.
Above, two of her self portraits which I took for inspiration to make mine: Frida Kahlo Necklace and Earrings set
There will be a vote for the favourite art piece at the Etsy Owls blog. For me, they are all my favourite! Check on the entries of all participants at Etsy by writing the keyword: Frida challenge, or by clicking here Frida challenge
Good luck to all participants, but most importantly, Keep the faith.
