My Frida !

I have always been an admirer of Frida's life and work but mostly her life and the way she lived it. She had a difficult journey but she always managed to come back from painful experiences stronger and more willing to live her life to the fullest.


I feel the same way, I have had some difficult moments in my life but I have learned to take the positive ALWAYS and learn from it. Life is to short to waste it in small things. 


I wanted to make a piece dedicated to Frida, and finally this week I got the courage and created a ring in her honor.
This is my humble interpretation of her and how I see her.


My first step was to hand sculpted Frida with Creative Paperclay.


Then I created a tree of life and a sacred heart with wings. These symbols are very important to me and I think they go perfectly with Frida's life.

Finally I added life to the piece by coloring it with acrylics.

Frida was never afraid to the dead and even though she suffered from a terrible accident that left her in pain for the rest of her life, she always had her wings to fly and express her life through her paintings.
