FAMOUS ARTIST BIRTHDAY - FRIDA KAHLO

FRIDA
Acrylic on Deep Wrap Canvas
18" x 24"
(Unfinished)

This painting is nearly finished but not quite. It started life as a practise piece for Art Battle and I enjoyed painting it so much that I kept going past the 20 mins and 10 mins touch up. I'm not sure portraits are good candidates for my fast paintings because its so important to get the features right.
Nevertheless she will be available and if you love the painting contact me to have first refusal when it is complete.

FRIDA KAHLO
Frida Kahlo de Rivera
born Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón
(July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954)

Today we honor Frieda Kahlo, a Mexican artist and a lady of great strength and character. Since her death in 1954 at the age of 47, Frieda has become something of a cult heroine. She was married to one of Mexicos greatest stars, Diego Rivera and she was also an artist in her own right, specializing in extraordinary self-portraits. She overcame many difficulties and is a great example for any female artist struggling to succeed.
