This is a painting I made of Frida Kahlo. At the top it reads “Cuantos quisieran ser yo” meaning how many wish to be me. I have struggled with issues of self worth and self esteem for many years. These were words my dad told me when I was down in the dumps. He said, “How many wish they could be you.” It’s true, not just of me necessarily but the fact is that many of us undervalue ourselves when there is nothing wrong with us; when in fact we are awesome great people with wonderful talents. This painting reflects those ideas–love yourself because you’re worth it.
