As I work on the quilt I become immersed in the spirit of the subject. – Frida Khalo.
Having just visited her home and been privy to her sketch books, the wonderful design of her house and the colors that gave passion to her interesting life. I don’t think I can leave the portrait as a stand alone piece of art. Thee photos were taken at her house. Diego Rivera, her husband (twice over) painted her with lilies and I think I will use the images and colours of the flowers and leaves in the photos as a rather large border around the quilt.
