Frida's Doodles

Some images from The Diary of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait, Introduction by Carlos Fuentes.
My son and his wife gave me this book several years ago - it is a visual feast!
From the inside cover:
Covering the years 1944-54, the 170 page journal contains Frida's thoughts, poems and dreams, and reflects her stormy relationship with her husband, Diego Rivera, Mexico's most famous artist. The seventy watercolor illustrations in the journal - some lively sketches, several elegant self-portraits, others complete paintings - offer insights into her creative process, and show her frequently using the journal to work out pictorial ideas for her canvases.
