I like how we see her "change" through her own eyes, and her own strokes on the canvas. Much in the same way I like to see how I have changed when re-reading my journals. I love a woman who tells her own story~in her own way, in her own time.
Very very cool. I liked 1944 best. I'd seen it before (here?) but just noticed the pins. I ain't that observant.Happy Mute Monday!
mayden!! good to see you out and about. frida was the master of translating personal pain into a beautiful painting. i have always had her in my pantheon of immortals.troll: you did. i posted "the broken column" along with my poem about my broke neck. i've got pins too -looks like somebody built a deck in there. grrrerhahaha happy MM
I love this...brilliant, as per usual.
unibrowedwomen are hot!¤ ¤ ¤/t.
I love this - what a wonderful "mini" art lesson along with illustrating change for not only an artist, but a woman. The first is so "innocent" and the last one... with the heart on her pallet.. intense/amazing.This made me go read more about her... she boxed! What a woman.
I love her paintings. Great timeline!
thursdaynext: thank you! some other good candidates were gauguin and van gogh. the one i REALLY wanted to do was dora maar -wife of picasso. its interesting to see how his paintings of her change as the marriage sours. but theyre hard to find on line and i too tired to scan...../t: grrrerherhaha i just through my tweezers out!anonymousboxer: she was a bad-ass all right. that first self-portrait is interesting the hand is quite large -reminds me of the african tradition of emphasizing the important parts to the life. romare bearden was like that too. happy MM!
Wow! Now THAT'S what I call dedication!(subject matter AND artist!)Good job! I have favorites, but, saying which would demean the others, so screw me....they're all great!And, just as strange would be my recent obsession with computer painting, though, as of today, that's history for a bit.Meanwhile, the top of m'blog IS a bird (common grackle) I did with corel draw photo/paint.(ps, when i say "top" I mean just that, too)
Wow...fantastic...what a her-story :)xxpinks
She was one of my mother's favorite artists and I'm ashamed to admit I don't know that much about her. But every time I see one of her works I'm bowled over by its expressive power. More to learn! Happy MM
Body hair on a woman can be adapted to, once one has a Lilith Fair or two under his belt.But the mono-brow leaves me constantly thinking about a lone bird in flight, which I cannot reconcile when contemplating mutual commitment.Sorry. It's me, not her.
What fabulous portraits, awesome MM!
All these pictures of Salma Hayek...I don't get it.:-)
she was a remarkable woman..a remarkable and amazing artist..i'm constantly in awe.
Very interesting portraits She. At least when I come here I know I will get educated about something I know very little about. You might even make me appreciate good art yet :)Happy MM.
ow ya loves Frida, but she's worrisome I think. The human airplane over her head in 29, the marriage whar' he holds the palette, the last selection, she holds it, he is the painting...sigh, she tells the viewer so much.
oh my the dali themed one is really out there.I am procrastinating, I am still working on hell paper.love ya!
