Frida, by RK Schlueter

9x8" oil on panel. Portrait of legendary Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo " I paint my own reality" she said. Frida is a force like lightening, like Billy Holiday, Janis Joplin...the list is long of women who inspire me to find my own voice and belt it out.
Thank you for visiting!


  1. very cool...i'll bet she was fun to paint!

  2. Rachel, your portrait appears to embody the actual fiery spirit of Frida!
    What stunning brushwork, choice of colors and shapes.
