One of my high school classmates contacted me a few months ago to commission a piece for her boyfriend, also an artist, who has a penchant for all things Mexican folk art related. She wanted a portrait of herself done in this style to give him for their anniversary.
Frida Kahlo was one of my first favorite artists, and in college I adored putting anatomical hearts in almost everything I did. The heavy symbolism used in Mexican folk art is one of my biggest influences and still carries over into my current work. Needless to say, I really loved working on this piece!
I hope you all have a beautiful Tuesday and something summer-y planned.
