"My Painting Carries With it The Message Of Pain"
- Frida Khalo
This months journey is inspired by the famous artist Frida Khalo, and my amazing sister. Frida Khalo suffered lifelong health problems and often used these feelings in her self portraits.
Is inspired by her style. A year ago my twin sister suffered a massive stroke at the age of 43. This event has shaken our whole family to its core. This blog has been a form of therapy for me. When I make things I seem to go to another place....a much happier place.
Debbie suffers from aphasia, one of her after affects from her stroke. She is a work in progress, I know one day she will be back to herself....I must believe in this.
In my head I image the gears of her brain trying to put the letters back to where they are supposed to be so she can form her words. I tried to convey this in my journal page.

I Painted lips under the butterfly,
when she is speaking well I am going take the butterfly off!
Can't wait for that day!!
