Frida's braids


Inspired by this painting by Frida, I came up with this:



Her braids reminded me of a nest, so I added some leaves and a blue bird.
This painting is up for auction on ebay

Frida's rivalling Leia in the baked-good hairstyles there!

I really like the way the braids become branches - it is so sweet! ANd the necklace glows.

This is my favorite Frida! Her hair actually reminds me of how my Mom used to wear her hair...braided and wrapped around her head.
