Happy Birthday Frida! (Google's Fridarific Doodle)
Today the beautiful Frida Kahlo "is turning" 103, but she doesn't look a day over 30 thanks to Google's homage to the Mexican painter and activist. Google transformed "Self-Portrait With Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird." into a their signature doodle. Rather than her necklace of thorns, Frida has the word 'google' drapping her neck.
I have the same framed print of the portrait, the original not the google version, hanging in my family room. In fact my whole family room is dedicated to the prolific artist. Stay tuned for a home tour.
