Frida Kahlo

Well since I'm absolutely obsessed with Frida I thought I'd do an inspirational post.

Frida












She looks so beautiful in that photo







Frida y Diego




Their wedding photo





















this photo's been taken shortly before Frida died



After reading so much about their love/hate relationship and Diego's countless affairs, their divorce and re-marriage I came to the conclusion that I wouldn't have had to read so much, seeing that picture explains everything. They loved each other until the very end.

Pinturas



Cristina, Frida's sister



one of my favourite paintings



"The Broken Column"

it sometimes scares me how expressive her paintings are... Only by looking at that one you can almost feel the pain she must've endured





















"Viva la Vida" is the last painting Frida did, these three words kind of became my mantra. I especially adore her for her irrepressible optimism and her ability to love life regardless of how hard it had been and how much pain she had experienced. I'm gonna get Viva la Vida as a tattoo in the near future.
