Hi pals! It's been a while since I've written. How are you? How was your summer? Here we are, at the end of August already. WOW. It flew by and dragged by at the same time, didn't it? Mostly, flying by for me, as this has been a summer of getting back into art shows. Hubby and are don't know if we are coming or going lately, but it's been fun, and the turn out at the shows have mostly been wonderful! I think everyone was excited to get back to it again!
In between shows, the hubby and I took a quick little trip to Chicago that was purely for fun, not work. We had postponed tickets for the Frida exhibit at The Cleve Carney Museum of Art. Our tickets were originally for 2020, and well, we all know the rest of the story. Postponed. Until now.
Most of you know Frida's story, so I won't elaborate here....and if you don't know her story, it's easy to learn...many books and movies on her life, and what influenced her art. She has become an icon for many of us know....an example of strength in adversity, and a woman who was truly her own woman, not afraid to express who she really was. For the day and age she lived in, that was not easy. Hell, it's still not easy in this day and age. I was surprised by how moving it was to be in the presence of some her original works. To see the brush strokes and markings. Magical.
