The quote challenge this month is Frida Kahlo who was born in July and died in July.

Frida Kahlo was a Mexican self-portrait artist who was married to Diego Rivera and is still admired as a feminist icon.
Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907, in Coyocoán, Mexico City, Mexico. Considered one of Mexico's greatest artists, Frida Kahlo began painting after she was severely injured in a bus accident. Kahlo later became politically active and married fellow communist artist Diego Rivera in 1929. She exhibited her paintings in Paris and Mexico before her death in 1954. https://www.biography.com/people/frida-kahlo-9359496/

You may use your favorite quote or use one of the following:

Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?

I paint flowers so they will not die.

I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best.

Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light.

I love you more than my own skin.

I am happy to be alive, as long as I can paint.

There is nothing more precious than laughter.

Painting completed my life.

The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.

At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.

I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better.

Here is my page using the quote:
Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?
