Hello friends: I’m so happy to tell you that today’s Reconstructionist is none other than Frida Kahlo! She was a real treat for me to draw & paint.
I’ve loved Frida for many years, beginning in the early 1990′s when I was first introduced to her work. You may recall that recently I wrote about the opening of her closet in Mexico City. And last year I had the honor of illustrating the cover for The Secret Book of Frida Kahlo for Simon & Schuster. And she is the author of one of my favorite quotes of all time.
