Standard

Frida Kahlo was born on this date in 1907.    

She was born Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón in Coyocoán, Mexico City, Mexico.

See a short video biography of her here: http://www.biography.com/people/frida-kahlo-9359496.

I’m going to assume you already know about Frida Kahlo, or if you don’t that you will watch the video and do your own research. I’m going to use this post not to tell about her life, but to celebrate her life and her work by sharing some of her paintings.

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I've never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again. I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist. Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it. I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk. This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a reply
