Frida Kahlo on Self-Portraiture

Quote by Frida Kahlo about self-portraits


I haven't gone through a self-portrait phase per se, however I reference myself in my work all the time. My figures have often looked like me and I always thought it might be because I am most familiar with my own features and over all physical look. Frida Kahlo says it best in the quote above,  and I wanted to share it with you today because I thought it might give you a chance to think and notice if you somehow reference yourself in your art. If you have never done this consciously it might be a great experiment the next time you feel blocked....there's so much to know about you, and only you know that subject best. Sort of empowering isn't it?
