Oh my, I love this piece! Such beautiful coloring! ^^

I'm a fan of Frida Kahlo and her works, so I'm familiar with her paintings including "A Few Small Nips" and "The Wounded Deer". Your work is a very interesting tribute to her! :love:

Is it okay if I use your piece in a report for school if I source you? What is the idea behind the arrows? It's a very interesting interpretation of Frida Kahlo; it's not like anything I've seen before!

Thank you!
Yes sure, go ahead! Frida Kahlo used the symbolism of arrows in a few of her artworks (the most famous one being "The Wounded Deer"). To me they represent the metal spear that when through her abdomen when she had her accident as a teenager, and the surgeries and trials she had to go through afterwards. Arrows are widely used as symbols for pain and life trials in religious art, which I referenced heavily in this work. :)

I love those hands!  And the arrows sticking out like that give the piece a really dynamic fee.  Great work as always! :heart:
