In the style of Frida Kahlo, by Elaine (jaguarish)

I admire Frida Kahlo and thought it would be fun to do something in her style.  Initially, I flippantly thought I might draw myself with a monobrow, but after looking over her collected works I decided to do something along the lines of The Wounded Deer (1946).  You can see it on this page, along with other works:

I was also thinking about her self portraits with animals on her shoulders... those are my kids on my back, and that's me with the body of a jaguar.  This is more like a layout than a properly finished work, but as I'm running out of time I thought I'd better post it!

Note: image I originally put here was blurry and has now been updated.


  1. Glad you did post this Elaine, and I would say this is complete. You may have been tempted to overwork it, love this. I can see the influence of Frida.

  2. Thanks, Ann, I do like the concept Frida created. Trying to make my version really made me think!

  3. Elaine, I like your thinking as well as your piece! Great that you put yourself into it.

  4. Very creative!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love how you too seem to be doing two themes at once!!!

  5. I love it! You actually covered the pets/animals theme, as well as the previous one with this piece. Blessings!
