She has since left with her mad skills, wicked sense of humor, and kind heart to rejoin her family across the ocean. You are still in our hearts and the ripples from the love you shared will continue to flow. I made this as a gift to remember our time together and it will soon be on its way to you mi hermana.
The traditional symbol of the underrepresented, the Virgin or Tonatizin is at the center of this collage piece, her background is the field of Tejas bluebonnets something we both talked about and missed living in AR. The mother and son represent not only her two beautiful sons but mothers and children that she has helped along her journey. Other traditional imagery of our joint culture are also a part of this work like the Loteria cards, and the dia de los muertos images. Te aquerdas that party or the Chola adventure? We had some good times hermana and I hope to cross paths once again. Mucho carnio, abrazos, y Dios de bendiga!
