Subject: Your art

Hello Alma Lopez:
First I want to thank you for sharing your art with us. Sometimes I forget that the artists of the world are not obligated to open their work to the public as you have done. I was recently introduced to your work in the course of my job here at my school, the University of Texas at San Antonio. I love your work!

I am on your website trying to find a digital print of a person (you, I presume), in a squatting position holding a candle toward an image of "Lupe and Sirena in Love". I don't know what you called it. For some reason I identify with that picture and I was trying to find it to show to the director of, a feminist and human rights activist. I can't find it for the life of me. Please help me find a website or tell me where I might get a print of it. I would rather get a print (large) so I can possess it forever.

Don't let them get you down about "Our Lady". It is awesome!! You are a brave chicana to expose yourself that way and that is what I meant when I said artists are not obligated to share their work with us. When I look at your work, I feel that I have received something, because I have been allowed, by your generosity, to partake of your soul. I tell everybody about you!
