Today was really about tying up all the loose ends and winding down from the retreat. I wanted to show you the collage honoring Frida Kahlo that I created. It was actually quite fun. Photo is my own

Thank you Arunima! I hope to start feeling freer to use bright and bold colors.

@TheSojourner I love bright and bold colours. I dress up in bright colours and most of the decors in my home like cushions, bed covers etc are bright. It cheers up my mood.

I love the element of tatted lace of some sort. And I really appreciate it having those pieces to be able to cut out and use.

@TheSojourner I gave a friend a lot of crocheted d'oyleys and she incorporated parts of them into a quilt.

@TheSojourner Frida Khalo is one of my favorite painters.

@marguicha Yes, you and I learned that about one another a couple weeks ago. You were a bit surprised about that! We'd never talked about it.

@TheSojourner I've read about the horrific accident she was in and the pain she's had to endure her whole life . . . not just physically. Still she kept going - her boldness shows in her artwork.

@much2say I agree. And, she liked to piss people off and shock them! She didn't agree with the conservative way of looking at life.

I like the fact that she did things over the top sometimes. I know a lot of people who did not care much for her, but I liked her spirit, her willingness to speak her mind, and that she continued to do things, even though she was sick.

I love you using elements of things that are different than what people expect. Also, there is 3D dimension on this even with some of the butterflies, but it doesn't show up very well in a photograph.
