 20 of these images were printed. The first attempt went into the trash. This is the second one, a success!

I spent some time traveling in Mexico and Central America when I was in my 20’s (the seventies!) and was mesmerized by the spectacular embroidery and weaving from village to village.

I used to dress exactly as Frida did, although at the time I did not know anything about her. I've always worn my hair in a bun with flowers, even as a teenager which is why my father used to call me "Orchid Head".
I loved to wear huipils (traditional Mexican blouses), big skirts, flowers in my hair, wild earrings, big necklaces, and lots of silver and turquoise rings. (Actually, all these laters I still pretty much dress and adorn in a similar way!) My hair is always in a bun with flowers unless a hat is on my head.
I drew Fridas huipil from my own huipil that I got in Oaxaca Mexico, which I still have after all these years. 

Also while in those parts of the world I learned how to carry things on my head, wash my clothes in the river, and vowed when I had my own children I would carry them on my back, which I eventually did with all three of them.
