DC: Frida

thinking of Frida
feeling into the trials and joys of her life
roots and wings came to me
she painted her life
through roots and wings 
more than the conventional and expected ways

thank you Patrice
for hosting this week
and your wonderful prompt
Frida Kahlo


  1. LOVE your Frida with her roots and wings, really wonderful. There's a nice quote from Waitley, 'The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence'. Have a great weekend, hugs, Valerie

  7. Very "Frida"!
    She looks as serene here as in her own work :)

  8. Excellent, Tammie!!! Good idea. Like a Frida/tree! No doubt, this is a Tammie's Frida! Congratulations!

  9. Roots and wings. One holds firm and the other soars. Frida must have felt that way in her life. She is such an inspirational woman of courage and joy and laughter. xo Carole

  10. this is really Frida !

  11. she surely did, frida did. as always, my eye is drawn to the stippling, great addition to depth. n♥

  12. This is a calm and neat Frida, love what you had made here. Love her wrap-over jacket and necklace which matches her wings.

  13. Oh, Tammie ~ I LoVe Frida ... and this painting. So beautiful!

  14. She looks like a sister of Frida Kahlo. Her wings are also from a stag.. Her roots are like a warm fire ..I feel with her having sheep: roots, earth - having doves: wings, heaven.

    Much challenges in life . The RIGHT fire must burn, fire making warm and giving energy and not destroy

  15. Roots and Wings! Yes, I love your Painting. But there is also a question in it: can you fly, if you have so strong roots?

  16. Ha Tammie, nicely put down a painting of Frida Kahlo,
    a colorful woman, beautiful description you upon
    dear greetings Christiene.

    Ha Tammie, mooi neergezet een schildering van Frida Kahlo,
    een kleurrijke vrouw, mooi jou omschrijving er bij
    lieve groetjes Christiene.

  17. Tammie, the idea of roots and wings. perfection! thank you so much for the inspiration.

  18. Oh, well chosen: roots and wing. Indeed the quote would perfect fit!

  19. Beautiful and very creative. Love the roots!
