DC Challenge Frida!







Patrice A has chosen the theme of the Drawing Challenge this week. 

Her wardrobe and personal belongings (which had been locked in a bathroom by Diego after her death) was only recently unlocked and then photographed by the Japanese photographer Ishiuchi Miyako (now exhibiting these images at the Micheal Hoppen gallery in London).




'painted' with  my finger and digital software on a 6x11cm mobile phone screen  
over a portrait taken on my phone.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to dress like this every day!
The trans-formative power of dressing up.

Go Frida!!

HELLO HELLO! SO MISSED YOU! Don't go away again! Love you as Frida and completely understand the corseted and restrictive clothing. A sort of Victorian garb translated for the damaged, broken. How are you doing? How are your studies? Hope all is well. Oh, how's your garden...oh my gosh, so much catching up to do! Biggest hugs in the world dearest.
