"Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in Detroit"

Last week, I spent the day at The Detroit Institute of Art.  The show "Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in Detroit" is on exhibit and well worth the visit.  

I enjoyed seeing the work of both artists. Seeing work in person is candy to my eyes. One piece resonated more than the rest, a pencil study for her painting Henry Ford Hospital (the flying bed).  Looking at the piece, so emotional, I cried. Many other works were incredible as well. I loved the intimacy of her work, the scale too.

Frida is one of the women in my series, the Book of Ours created in 2008.
