ABOUT LAS CEREZAS:
Las Cerezas is full of passion and momentum. It is bold and unapologetic. There is a sense of defiance and stubborness to this piece that I can’t get enough of. I was tired of trying to hide who I was, and this was the piece where I consciously made an effort to
communicate who I am to the world.
This piece began with a much lighter background, something that is not easily covered up with my medium of choice. I believe the amount of effort it took to get the background to be as dark as possible is clearly evident in the piece, and leaves the viewer with a sense of courage and determination. There are areas where the lighter under layer is peaking through the dark overcoat.
When I look at Las Cerezas I see so many things, but the two that are most salient to me are (1) that transitions are when "we grow “thick skin” to help us protect our insecurities and emotions, and (2) there is no such thing as “too late” to be who you want to be.
