The paintings of @jennybelin have been our revolving house show for over three years now. Her most recent iteration of #fridakahlo captures the artist in her prime. In a moment when all of us are struggling in one way or another, Frida’s spirit inspires. She faced remarkable hardship, but brought life and color with her, bequeathing us with a legacy that brings joy on a regular basis. #dontgiveup #brooklynstrong #webuiltthisnyc #webuiltthisbrooklyn
