Looking for Latina Artists who are interested in collaborating on sharing and promoting their art. I am looking for artists willing to let me use their art for my blog posts, in return, I will pin your art on my pinterest site and promote you on twitter and facebook when I promote my blogs and my business, raices y almas.
All art will have a caption and a credit...linked to your ABLA page
and all pinterest pins will go back to your page as well.
Martha Thank you for sharing It must have been hard to use her image. But like you said it is good to honor her. And as for this side of California everything is swell. I am going to a ceramic class on Saturday taught by Irma Montelongo of Art By Latina Artist. I am so excited to learn something new. I love your etsy store I will tell my friends about it. right now
Your photography is beautiful. I love to take photos myself but am totally a work in progress. I have a little Canon digital camera and shoot all my Etsy photos which are also a work in progress. Sometimes I get them right, sometimes I totally fail. Taking lots and lots of shots seems to be my only solution to this problem. Read your bio. I am with you in that my Spanish is terrible. I throw in a few words here and there but otherwise I can't seem to find the thread that leads me to back to Spanish. Classes??....few-git-a-bow-it!! I tell people I'm Latina in my heart!!
In March 2010, there will be a series of events in Mexico City, Mexico, Los Angeles, California, and other cities, meant to be a ritual of mourning for the femicides in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua: Art as a pathway of opposition and resistance to violence.
We invite you to be part of this initiative of art activism. Below is the link to the blog we have dedicated to this and where you will find the Call for Entries. This invitation is open to all individuals, groups, organizations, artists and activists. The events in March 2010 will include awareness raising creative workshops, intervention actions, plays and performances and the exhibition of the art work received through the call for entries and the resulting art from the workshops. http://unaoracionporjuarez.blogspot.com/
For those who do not live in Mexico City or Los Angeles metropolitan areas, we invite you to organize your own community activity during the same month of March, 2010. It could be an Art Exhibit, a book discussion, a movie screening, a poetry reading, etc. We ask you to include the original title of this event “A Prayer for Juarez,” and to send us your schedule, and later on, photos and documentation, to be included in the blog.
To include your event, or for any kind of issue related, please write to us:
In the US: email@example.com
In Mexico: firstname.lastname@example.org
Creating protest art transcends culture and gender. We are united in a larger community of like-minds and humanitarian goals. We thank you in advance for your dedication and your prayers for the women of Ciudad Juarez. NI UNA MAS!
PLEASE FORWARD THIS DATA TO PEOPLE YOU KNOW

Thank you! I really love it when someone finds something in my work that brings them happiness. :-) I think that's why we all work so hard sometimes at what we do. to unite. To bring smiles...gracias! :-)
It was just like the Porgy and Bess song...."Summertime, and the living is easy." Humidddddd, thick, thick air and you walked reeeeal slowwwwww. They were having a Satcho festival (Louis Armstrong) with different known musicians and it was free. Just sweat and enjoy the music. The museum right beside it had a fabulous Napolean exhibit. Wow, he was way more than just a little guy! Also, NOMA had a fabulous Botero exhibit. It was huge with lots of his paintings and sculptures. Besides that, my friends who own the vacation rental apartment put in a small pool in the back so we hung out with them, talked and laughed. I even ran into locals I've met from previous visits. I also visited some salvage/junque stores and came back with some real finds. Olga my dear, I love New Orleans. Give me New Orleans hot, humid and rainy or cold, windy and rainy and I am so happy there.
Are you sorry you asked me now? I could go on and on. Here is my email address if you ever want to write me there too: email@example.com
I wanted to post an image of a recent painting I've been working on. Here's a detail shot for you. It may be in the next The Near Future Ago pop-up show in late August, but I haven't decided yet. It's a personal one. I think it may be called, The Bridge. Kinda raw still emotionally for me. We'll see...Have a great Week xoSee More
