This is another old favorite. I just love Frida Kahlo, she is my dead celebrity girl crush. Before Pearl was born, when the nursery was briefly my studio space, I had Frida pictures everywhere. I loved all her different faces keeping me steady, challenging me to do more, push harder, to be more vulnerable and less afraid. This is one of my favorite Frida Kahlo paintings.
It is softer and less complicated than most of her self-portraits, but I think it still has all her fierce strength. When I see this image, I feel like Frida is saying, “Yes, it is difficult, but it is not impossible. Nothing is.”
