Frida's Boots

Marjorie Farrell's avatar Marjorie Farrell Vote Code: 65068

Frida Kahlo has become my Muse. Dynamic, worldly, vital--filled with love and life. She overcame many hardships. My wish, through my art, is to give back to her some of that joy of life. I have created images of her visiting in her garden with Gods, Goddesses, and the Cosmos. I have dressed her in exotic garments--embroidered and beaded vintage silk kimonos. Now I have given her a pair of decorated boots to dance the night (or day) away. They are covered with vintage laces, milagros, ribbons, beads, art supplies, and a brace as a reminder of what she has championed. Look closely. Her life is all there.
