Frida Kahlo Art Doll
She’s done. My Frida Kahlo doll is complete. I’ve have been working on her slowly. Thinking about every detail.
All the dolls are simple, moon-faced things by design. I don’t want to try to make them just like real people.
The new light I bought is blowing out the color here.
I am feeling like I could make many Frida dolls. She is such a rich subject and satisfies my affection for the Americas whose culture I absorbed as a girl in Santa Ana — the Californios, the Mexicanos — all that rich culture fed me.
I want to make a Frida with a green shawl and a pet monkey.
I could also make her pet dog. I could be stitching this woman for days and days.
