Praying for a Miracle - Frida Kahlo Portrait by k Madison Moore

Praying for a Miracle - Frida Kahlo
Forever Frida Series

16 x 20 oil on Canvas

Before Frida Kahlo reached her 25th birthday, she had contracted polio, survived a horrific bus accident and endured a traumatic miscarriage. However, the loss of her baby — compounded by the alienation she was experiencing shaped her artistic vision and propelled her career forward.

Her miscarriage and unfulfilled desire to have a child became a major theme of her work.

The miscarriage also influenced Rivera to change a panel of one of his murals that he was painting at the time. Instead of an agricultural scene the panel shows a baby inside the bulb of a plant.

 'She felt so disheartened because she would have loved to have a little Dieguito, but her dream did not come true.

I wanted this Frida composition to be a combination of Frida and Diego since the child would have been theirs. I was inspired by the three reference photos from their work that I have included below.  This is a very heartfelt painting for Frida Kahlo.

As seen in his mural
by Diego Rivera

I always loved this painting by Diego Rivera
so decided to use the pose and incorporate the flowers.

Self Portrait 1933 - Frida Kahlo 
I thought this to be the perfect face to use for this
painting since she was so young at the time of the loss
of her child.
