For the Love of Frida

For Christmas, I always ask for new books to read and this year; Barbara Kingsolver's book, "The Lacuna" was on my list.  At the heart of the story is Frida Kahlo who has always been one of my favorite artists, and because of this book, she's been on my mind and in my heart all week.
SO, since I haven't done a post featuring Etsy artists lately, I decided to do a feature, featuring artists who have featured Frida in their work.

This "Day of the Dead" charm bracelet includes a small cameo of Frida and can be found among other wearble beauties at Designs by SharonAnn.

This Wood Panel collage titled, "Sunflower Frida" is included with paintings, cards and other mixed media works by Nikki McFerren in her Etsy shop.

These fabulous Converse sneakers represent a myriad of Fridas; gorgeous!  These shoes can be found in the Etsy shop called, "Wearable Frida".

This original oil portrait of Frida by Sunjin Kim of SecretMagic  really speaks to me with it's color and movement, as does all the work by this artist- wonderful stuff!.

This Frida Portrait ornament by Lisa at WinOforeverO is something that could be treasured all year round; not just during the holiday season.

These fine art glass earrings called, "The Two Fridas" were created by Lalucita whose shop  includes a wide array of wearable art.

This is truly inspiring. Barbara Kingsolver will be presenting writers' workshops at the San Miguel Writers Conference in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico February 19-23 2010. I just signed up. It looks like a rare opportunity to meet her. Are you going?
