Alma first at all CONGRATULATIONS!!! I
can't understand why so much noise of some people about the way you express
your feelings and how you get the inner feeling of the actual woman, how you
said with her face riced up. Some people like Mr Villegas they
have to learn the way to see ART, beside the strong and beautiful lady
(indigeno chicano-latino-mexicana) you handle another mexican elements like
Coyoautli who represents just to our mother. The mother of mexicanos
before the gachupines came to our land and destroy our own traditions. And
I can see that you are not using the image of Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe
(el sr villegas does not know how to pronounce her name even he said
Nuestra de Guadalupe).
So you keep on expressing your feeling and the way you see the new (indigeno-chicano-latino-mexicana) woman.
I don't have a very fluently english language answer to me if you speak spanish and I can be more clear about what I want to express to you.
I think you are not damaging anybody their
mind is the one damage.

It is a very good art piece
, i like your composition and post modern/ traditional colors. Religiion is
a very touchy issue, too political it has always been, almost full of crooks
and gienny pigs. thats why crooks remain in power. religion is good but not
the fulfillment of ones life, the basic fact that if we learn just to love
and accept others it will be blyss in its own way. Religion does not make
us, obligation of exploitation and fabricated manipulation decieve us, and
many are led the ignorant way. legends are writen and twiested, that people
with short sight cannot see the DIFFERENCE . this is a quote that i believe
always" VISIBLE POWER IS OF NO VALUE, FOR PERCEPTION IS THE KEY THAT
UNLOCKS THE UNTANGIBLE POWER OF THE SPIRIT" in one perspective
this is how i interprete your painting, a person whos is confident but
angry inside, almost has the painters past has been somehow left behind for
her sex, proving a point in 2D has she sees the virgin and herself . butterfly
wings...busty angel...maybe short intense sensations of lusty sexual arousement.
Proud Aztlan beauty, at the same time hollow. The courtains behind, originally
her robe, maybe the devil in disguise, her robe behind as the background shows
her as a decietful demon without her robe, probably the great whore that we
have read about in the bible.Or could it be the pagant godess of the Aztecs?
before she was deface by the Spaniards. The beautiful roses covering
her croch and breast seem so crisp and fresh and sure if you take a deep breath
you can almost smell them, drawing you closer to these beautiful plants, drawing
you closer to lust. her pose is strong, with intimidating eyes, the look of
despair and vengeance.A goddes whom does not have equal rights, and wants
to take on the people whom she blames..hahahha.A feminist act???..if
so have you thought of how lucky you are???, your not in China where baby
females are butcher, or the middle east where you are only allow to take orders
and not think, or how about Africa where females are circumcise.anyways there
is more but i will stop. another interpretation is a nice painting that
has become a great marketing tool for you, exceptional!!! great idea you are
more well known know and respected than before, fame and popularity rates
are up and so is the money$$$$$$$$:) ps: i like your artwork would like to
see more of your masterpieces.......till then stay in touch..... the Crimson
