"What Frida Taught Me"
Oil On Panel
36"x24"

The idea for this painting was conceived during my time spent in the Yukon Territory recently. The quiet and isolation there was wonderful, and the composition is also inspired by Frida Kahlo's painting "What The Water Gave Me".

This makes me think of George Bush's strange bathroom paintings. But you're much more talented, of course. :)
