Happy Sunday! I decided to start an "Artist of the Week " post to do on Sundays!It's a good way to learn more about the different styles of each artist. This week in keeping with my Mexico theme, I will feature the fabulousFrida Kahlo : Frida was born on July 6th, 1907 in Coyoacan, Mexico to a Hungarian-Jewish father and a mother of Spanish and Mexican Indian descent. She was one of four daughters. Frida did not plan to become an artist .She had been studying Medicine at the " Escuela Nacional Preparatoria" in Mexico City. Out of 2000 students, Frida was one of only 35 women accepted into the prestigious institution.

My mother is 100% a Mexican "chilanga". Meaning she's from Mexico City. My father was Mexican American & German .I believe he loved the Mexican culture. So let's begin with the Mexican flag.I think it's beautiful:
This flag of the current times is a tricolor consisting of green, white and red vertical stripes with the coat of arms at the center in the white portion.
The colors have their own meanings. Green stands for hope, white for purity and red stands for religion. ♥
The coat of arms was designed by Architect Francisco Eppens Helguera . The coat of arms is an image of an eagle with a serpent held in its talon. The eagle is …
