Alma, so am I!!!!!!! I am not really an active member of this group but I do enjoy certain things about this list. For over 2 months, I had to deal with him attacking you on your design of the Virgin. Who is he to tell anyone what they should or shouldn't do??? Girl, I give you major props for doing something that you felt the need to do. Many artists are misunderstood. I am personally not an artist but my brother is and I know what he goes through. Alma, I admire your work and I am glad you responded to my e-mail. I can just imagine all the hate e-mails that Octavio is going to send to me after my comment.
It's all good!!!

Congratulations on a successful exhibit. I was
not aware of it until after-the-fact, but it seems to have generated quite
a bit of interest. Very successful I?d say. It seems to me that when I sat
as Board President of Galeria de la Raza in San Francisco we had a similar
situation with an LA artist who depicted Latino & non-Latino icons in
embraces -- Madonna and Mother Teresa, for example. It created a firestorm
of controversy and a broken window. But the result was a great community meeting
at Brava Theater where the issues were constructively discussed.
I wish you all the best in your future art endeavors.
