Guest posting for Emerald Creek

Hi Everyone,
I'm back guest posting for Emerald Creek Craft Supplies today. The theme up on the challenge blog is superheroes. When I heard this my first reaction was "crap."  Don't get me wrong I love superheroes, but making art with and about them? I really had to put on my thinking cap.  I took this theme and went extreme. I made something to celebrate, someone I consider, an art superhero. Frida Kahlo.

I've always admired Frida's work, but I have been reading more about her as a person. She was a total bad ass! What's more of a superhero personality must than being bad ass?!



She overcame major injuries and incorporated her pain, her joy, her anger, and her love into her art.

She didn't care what society thought about her. She was truly living as her authentic self. I think that is what art is all about, trying to find your authentic self.
Who is your art superhero? 
Jess
