Lila and the Spotted head tie

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

I met Lila in my mind one day. She wasn't too pleased. She seemed worried actually and the way her hair was pulled back by that spotted scarf made her high forehead seem even more pronounced. Lila, like the woman with the coral necklaces, told me when she was complete.
