Frida Kahlo loved her husband very much, but he was a womanizer and she drew his face on her forehead, as shown on one of her drawings "Diego in my thoughts".
As well as Gerald Davis, she was inspired by somebody, who was close to her, but made her feel sad.
Without feeling this pain, for these people, Frida Kahlo, as well as, Gerald Davis, would not draw these artworks. Both of their drawings mostly relate to their identity, thoughts and memories.
I think that Frida Kahlo is a strong woman who has chosen an unusual way to cope with her feelings - to draw everything she was thinking about. This gave her strength and helped her get through her problems, this is one of the examples of how art can change people's mood and help to deal with many problems.
