Here you can see myself in two different interpretations of Frida Kahlo.
Sad Frida. The one who had to deal with a lot of pain in her life.
Happy Frida. The one that celebrated beauty, regardless of her physical and emotional traumas.
Frida Kahlo has been such a great source of inspiration to me since the beginning. I discovered her art when I was about 15 years old. Later on, I read everything about her life and I was lucky enough to visit her house (La Casa azul) in Coyoacan, in 2000. Discovering Frida was one of the best things that happened to me in my adolescence. Today, that I am an adult, I appreciate her even more.
She has teached me not to take anything for granted (like my health, my children, my wonderful husband...) Wherever you are right now Frida, I just want to tell you that your life was important for the rest of us. You keep being an inspiration for so many women.
Mil gracias por todo!
