Fruit from Frieda Kahlo

I went to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art today, which has a big exhibit of the paintings of Frieda Kahlo. I discovered that if you wait until one-half hour before closing time, entry to the museum is free, including special exhibits if they have room--which they did.

Almost the first painting I saw after getting off the elevator was a portrait of Luther Burbank, looking a little like Mr. Sycamore.

Not long after, I came to a painting of Pitahayas!

And later still, some still lifes with fruit. (I've added a couple of extras here that aren't in this exhibit.) Rare fruit partout!
