Flash Fire Challenge: Frida Kahlo...

Not too long ago, I was looking up some of the famous artists who had been through this area.  One of them was Frida Kahlo, who stayed at Falling Water!  After finding that out, I brought out all the art books and looked at her paintings again and played Julie Taymoor's biopic about the artist repeatedly.  So for this week's challenge, I decided to feature a painting by Frida Kahlo.  To find out more about Frida's work, CLICK HERE.  To find out more about this painting, CLICK HERE.

"Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird" by Frida Kahlo, 1940, 16 X 24 inches.

To participate, all you have to do is make something that was inspired by this painting.  You can create whatever strikes your fancy.  Leave a link to your creation in the comment section or send me an image and I'll post one for you.  You can email me at: ardenttie@yahoo.com

You have until the next Flash Fire Challenge prompt goes up on Monday, June 17th to complete your piece.  Have fun and I can't wait to see what you make!
