This painting reminds me of my Great Grandmother Juanita “La Chica”, she helped heal through faith. As a young child I always loved watching her light candles at her alter & going to her garden to see the shrines of La Virgen De Guadalupe & Santo Martin. They were beautiful and lighted at night.

Women would bring their children to her for various maladies.
