I’m waiting for an answer

Painting: “I’m waiting for an answer" 2013 (50x60cm, acrylic on canvas).

“If I made the first move, now it’s your turn to make the next one…"

It was cold and she was observing the houses, the landscape, the animals passing by on the big train window thinking that she has always enjoyed traveling by train. The cabin was empty, after all, who travels to small towns when you have the big city waiting for you? (Oh yes!…her). She was about to arrive, so she applied perfume, put her red lisptick on and waited for the train to arrive at the station and stop. It was raining heavily and she was feeling a little nervous, misterious, someone who doesn't want to be noticed…but who could avoid it taking into account her foreign condition and the redness of her lips?. The train’s doors opened so she put her coat’s cap on, leaned her head down and then slowly up, just to get her eyes staring at his, who was covering from the rain while smoking one of his thousand cigarettes he smokes. And there he was, as incredible as she recalled him from the past days far far away when he asked "I'm waiting for answer", and at the same time his amazing hazel eyes answering for her already.

Frida Kahlo

Painting: “Frida Kahlo, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger" 2013 (100x100cm, acrylic on canvas)

“There have been two great accidents in my life. One was the trolley, and the other was Diego. Diego was by far the worst” Frida Kahlo

Many things have been written about the painter Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón (best known as Frida Kahlo), but this time we let herself talk about her life and her art with these statements…

“I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best”.

“I love you more than my own skin”.

“Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?”.

“My painting carries with it the message of pain”.

“I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality”.

“I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling”.

“I really don’t know if my paintings are Surrealistic or not, but I do know that they are the most honest expression of myself, never taking into consideration the judgments or prejudices of anyone ”.

“When I get out of here there are three things that I want to do… paint, paint, and paint”.

Extraordinary for a woman who wanted to be a doctor in the first place…(and this reminds me that "Sometimes you can find beauty in sadness"…)

 

Posing with my creation inspired by the painter Frida Kahlo… (“I just wanted to paint a brighter version of Frida Kahlo also assuming the pains implicit in her life”).
