Frida Kahlo painted countless portraits of herself and she was not afraid to expose her supposed flaws. She said "I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality."
Looking at my picture above, perhaps I didn't learn the lesson of never painting dreams and nightmares! I made a digital brush from a Kahlo self-portrait and vastly altered a background by Createwing Designs which I coloured and cut and pasted. The hand was Googled and the paint splatters are digital brushes.
