Rochelle Loves All Things Frida

An artist who’s art work I truly enjoy is Frida Kahlo.

I was lucky enough to enjoy a member’s preview of the Frida & Diego art exhibit at the AGO last year.

The exhibit inspired me to do a Frida portrait on my iPad.


A couple of months later, we watched the movie Frida starring Salma Hayek on Netflix. Although I learned about her art and life back in art school, the movie was an enjoyable refresher.

The food at this Mexican inspired restaurant, which displayed Frida Kahlo artwork on the walls, was a surprising, delicious treat. We enjoyed a fantastic meal that kicked off with yummy mango margaritas and the most delicious guacamole I think I’ve ever had! We’ll definitely be going back there again!
