  1. It seems this post was meant for me! :-))) I love Frida! Can't tell you how much I enjoyed visiting her beautiful house at Coyoacán, Mexico City, now a museum.

  2. I have never seen this side of Frida before! I think I've seen more "tame" images of hers, or only one or two of the more potent paintings at one time. These are disturbing and moving and powerful. This woman painted with her heart and her gut, with her blood and her bones. I better understand the admiration at Vulture Peak Muse, given what they have in common...

Emily Dickinson - The Belle of Amherst
"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
