Mexican art and color

Standard

Color makes me happy and Mexican art is full of it.

I love the blues of Frida Kahlo’s house mixed with the terracotta hues of the bricks and pottery scattered around the courtyard. I haven’t visited her Casa Azul but it’s definitely on my list of places to see.

The Huichol people make amazing pieces of art mixing sacred symbols, beads, and gorgeous designs. My grandma taught me to cross-stitch and one of these days I’d like to tackle a Huichol inspired cross-stitch.

The Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) holiday is a treasure trove of art and color. I’m attending Hollywood Forever’s Dia de Los Muertos event and can’t wait to see all the gorgeous altars and processions.
