Playing with Seed Pods

This is a photograph of Frida Kahlo, my favorite twentieth-century artist. The little ladies know who she is and enjoy looking at her self-portraits with me.


This is "Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird" from 1940.


The little ladies were playing with seed pods today and thought of Frida. This is "Araina with Dogbane Unibrow."


"Fauna with Black Locust Unibrow while Sipping Black Cherry Pop."


"Araina with Dogbane Whiskers."


"Fauna with Dogbane Whiskers."

Very cute! I love the rattle black locust pods make. We went for a walk a week ago and discovered a patch of milkweed that still had fluff in it. It's one of my favorites.

So creative! I think that photograph of Frida Kahlo is interesting...she's really quite beautiful, more so than I think she shows herself to be in her paintings.
