It's About Chola

Watercolor, colored pencil, digital collage

This piece is meant to appreciate my cousin and cherish the bond we have. I put a lot of emphasis on our culture & certain aspects of it because it means a lot to her and even the room painted is a sneak peak into our grandparents shop in Mexico. I love my family a lot and this felt like a coming of age piece that I'd hope for others to be able to feel and relate to as we grow older and parts of our childhoods reduce. But memories like that of running through a room at someone's birthday party with the cousin you've learned to see as a sibling will never lose its touch.
