|As you walk around the conservatory, you see and learn about plants native to Frida’s Mexico like these cacti and they also recreated her studio within the garden’s walls.|
|I am such a rebel. I picked up the paint brush to pose. My husband fretted that we would be kicked out but I assured him it was just a fake prop, not the artist’s real paintbrush… I think. By the way, you would think that I wore this Mexican peasant blouse just for the exhibit, but I basically wear these lightweight tops all summer long. I have three that I rotate in different colors. I bought all of them on etsy. Like my bag? I am offering them for sale on etsy too: Custom Handbags|
|This was a really cool part of the exhibition where they recreated Frida Kahlo’s art studio set up. It seems that she ground her own pigments.|
|Now that I study the set up, I am convinced that these are NOT her paint brushes as they look like they have never been used.|
|The garden includes these outdoor ponds ( not shown) and the walls are surrounded by bright marigolds.|
|Although I was disappointed the gift shop didn’t have “show specific” postcards, there was plenty of gift shop goodies to lust after like these fiesta themed glassware.|
|I also love the lush flower arrangement on the Frida themed table.|
|I couldn’t help but be reminded of the Sugar Skull mixed media paintings I’ve done, like this one.|

This is a cool idea! Sometimes when I make a plain list, I almost don't see it. I am experimenting with sketchnoting and that has helped.
Great article on Art Journaling Miriam. My biggest issue is finding the time to do one!
