What I do to rest from the mural

This is Corazón, the dancer and creative soul who inspired me to create this bag for her dance slippers as a birthday gift. The reaction of the guests inspired me to create some more paintings for a line of purses/totes.  The last one, the Spiral, is also meant as an example for a workshop at Columbia Presbyterian with the Narrative Medicine group I attend. The workshop is meant to help patients use color and art to generate a state for happiness to facilitate healing (more about this later in  my other blog Hoy, artista.)
