Artist of the Day- Frida Kahlo (click on image to see more)

Kahlo is Mexico’s most famous woman artist. She died in the 1950’s after a life of chronic pain from a terrible bus accident she was involved in. I mention this only because her suffering is something she includes in her paintings, many of which are self portraits. She was self taught, married to the muralist, Diego Rivera…more than once, had an affair with Trotsky…such a fascinating person and such an expressive painter!
