Who wants to win a Frida Kahlo magazine? (Plus last giveaway Winner Announcement!)

Hello everyone! I'm feeling so much better now (Thanks so much for the comments and the good wishes) and I'm getting back to work, slowly but with lots of ideas and projects in my mind.


I have another giveaway for you. This time it's one that I'm sure all Frida Kahlo fans out there will treasure. It's November's Vogue Supplement:  Frida Kahlo, Las apariencias engañan (Looks are deceiving). A magazine supplement dedicated uniquely and exclusively to the exposition of Frida's dresses, accessories and little treasures that will be shown at La Casa Azul very soon. (I'm dying to go!!!).  For the ones who can read Spanish it's packed with information, but also If you don't, all the pictures are worth the supplement.



This exposition and magazine just sparked an idea: I'm going to be making Frida's dresses painting series. I want to have by the end of the year at least 12 painting with some of the dresses that will be shown in this exposition.  What do you think? I can't wait to start!

So, do you want a copy? Just leave a message here saying what you like more about Frida. The winner will be announced next Friday, and you can participate from any part of the world :)
Oh an one more thing, the winner from the Life Book workshop is.... Olivia aka Eya!!!!
Congratulations!!! Olivia, please contact me!

I didn't know about Frida until I took a journaling workshop. I didn't know who she was or if she actually was a person - the reason I was so intrigued was the way her eyebrows connected. My eyebrows were just like that as a young girl. I felt an instant connection...hope I don't sound weird :)

I love her passion, her sheer will to survive. She made no excuses, and went all out, I love that.
Frida was a strong, beautiful woman, I love her creativity and her honesty.

I left a comment, but it doesn't seem to have worked....
Anyway, I love Frida and incorporate her into much of my artwork. I love how she still painted and did her artwork, even through all the suffering she endured. She is so inspirational! Viva la Frida!

I like her strength and boldness.
Oh my goodness! I LOVE Frida and this magazine looks amazing!!! ( I love your original Frida painting I bought, Danita!) Glad to hear you are feeling better. I could brush up on my Spanish with this gorgeous issue of her! I so admire her bravery when she was in such pain. She knew that she was more than her physical body...and lived it. She is an inspiration to me. Thank you, Danita! kath
Frida is a huge inspiration to me because of her perseverance. Through infidelity, painful operations, and miscarriages she kept painting. She never gave up on her life or her art. Whenever I feel there are obstacles in my way keeping me out of the studio, I think of Frida and what she overcame and I MAKE the time to create.
Frida era una mujer interesante y especial durante su tiempo y todavía se queda así. Sería un placer tener la revista y no puedo esperar tus pinturas de los vestidos coloridos de esa mujer increíble. Gracias por la oportunidad.

I admire her authenticity and, above all, the way she portrayed her life, wounds and dreams. One must be vary brave to do that.

Frida Kahlo worked at a time in Mexico’s history when women artists were not well-known or accomplished. Because of her tenacity, courage, and steadfastness, she demonstrated that she could be an artist in her own right. Frida Kahlo paved the way for many other female artists, and now more women artists have been successful. Frida Kahlo's accomplishments as an artist were historically significant for this breakthrough for women. Thank you, Frida, for being there for us.

Jessie said…
She inspires me to follow my heart... Not go with trends, not care about what other people may think, stand for what you believe in, persevere, and to paint from the soul. She was so unique and way ahead of her time. Her emotions and art were so raw and breathtakingly wonderful - no wonder she still captivates people from around the world. ¡Que Viva Frida!

I took a book out of the library a few years ago about Frida and was so impressed by not only her fortitude, but also how she had the gumption to do so many self-portraits. I love that! Before the days of Instagram, etc. :)

Hi! Oh my goodness! I'm an artist and have always loved Frida. BUT I also suffer from Fibromyalgia. Guess who else did? Frida! She was one of the first diagnosed cases. She's my hero! I even go to an FM clinic in Portland that is named after her! Can you believe my good fortune in being referred there for care? And guess what? It's called the Frida Center for Fibromyalgia in honor of Frida!

Hope I win, I just love her story and work and style, and everything I can find about her. :)

Thanks for listening!

Frida was/is amazing! She was able to live her life exactly as she wanted. We should all take a lesson from that. I honestly don't know how she dealt with all the pain she must've felt both emotionally and physically.

Frida has been such an inspiration throughout my life. Her remarkable story has given me strength when dealing with seemingly impossible circumstances. Each time I look at her masterpieces I see and feel something new. It speaks to my soul in a way unlike any other. I love my collection of tiny Fridas from Danita, they hover like a cluster of angels in a very special place...xoxo

Querido Danita Art, Frida Kahlo, la artista mexicana en primer lugar, demostró que los artistas mujer puede ser artista por derecho propio. A causa de ella, he empujado mi arte a los límites y seguir creciendo. Ella es mi musa e inspiración. A causa de ella, yo sé que puedo expresar mi arte en cualquiera de sus formas. A pesar de que ya no está con nosotros, su energía sigue fluyendo animar a otros para que ellos también puedan expresarse en el arte de miedo.
