"Mexico, all of my familia. Maybe, somehow we are connected, I've tried those websites where you trace back your last name, no success. But very cool to find a Latina artist on mylatinitas! :]"

you are one very awesome and interesting individual, to say the least. That is awesome... how long did it take to finish that mural up? and how is Chicago? I have always wanted to go and check it out since I was a kid, I haven't really been blessed w/ the opportunity to travel much but I am making it a must to go there along w/ a couple other places this summer. I admire that you have that drive to do what you love and what really interests you. man, I wish I had that artistic talent. Young women such as yourself make me be proud to be Latina and make me want to work hard. ay, I'm not trying to kiss butt ok? hahaha... but right on maya, you are awesome!
