I always wonder how much of Frida’s pain and turmoil influenced her art, it is all so beautiful and so powerful. But also so troubling at times to enjoy because it was created out of so much pain. I’d love to see her house-glad you all were able to see the blue house!

Very interesting place! So much pain though, I guess that is why she was such a good artist. She used her art to deal wiht all her pain and troubles. Must have been a very busy palce when she and Diego Rivera lived there. Can’t wait to visit it some day.
