La Latina

"I was so surprised at the Latina Woman's response to my paintings that I painted La Latina. Many Latina Women of all different backgrounds (Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Mexicans and so on) have given me such a warm and encouraging response that I had to paint the aura of these Latina's approval. Of course, some Latinas have wanted to shoot me off the face of the earth and have said to me in many ways...'how dare you think you are worth something'. But I only remember the many positive Latinas that have inspired me so much to continue."
