I just want to add a reminder about the Frida Kahlo exhibition at London’s V&A. Mexico have proudly protected Kahlo’s work against being bought and taken out of her home country, meaning we don’t see much of it internationally, so this new exhibition is pulling in the crowds. If you are in or around London and want to go, you really do need to book in advance. Some days in October are already sold out.

Thanks to everyone who brought us some entertaining threesomes last week – it was great to see such variety – pigs, pelicans, people, doors, rabbits, flowers, foxes, flags, chairs, birds, trees, … and even mailboxes.

    1. She was an amazing woman. At times the was quiet on the art front and lived more as Mrs Rivera and Mrs Mexican Feminist. Her terrible accident, on top of polio, gave her the necessity and determination to be a self-sufficient woman. And her constant pain gave her a story to tell in her artwork. I am really looking forward to seeing the exhibition of her work here in London at the moment.
