Level 3: Lola (aka grandmother) responsibilities include:
•become a total softie when it comes to the grandchildren (to the point where the parents keep telling your grandkids that they would be shocked at how strict you were with them)
•make food so good that no one will ever be able to come close to replicating it
•secretly give your grandkids pandesal sawsaw sa kape (sweet bread dipped in coffee) and then laugh at how hyper they become for their parents.
•pass down ancient superstitions & beliefs (like not cleaning your plate until everyone is done eating or else the person still eating will never marry).
•also pass down little bits of wise advice / words to live by (my favorite from my Lola: when they throw stones, throw bread back).
•teach younger members of the family how to properly roll lumpia wrappers.
•smell your grandchildren’s heads and tell them they smell like the sun

Three little female gods dropped in and started to create this triptych out of the blue. Like real ladies they asked for their salary of course. After admitting to buy ice cream with it, they received their bucks for sure!
When they left the store, I‘ve received some of the sweetest words ever heared: „When I‘m grown up, I want to work here“ 🥰

A friend in the beginning of the year asked me what my word for 2019 was.. and I said expand.. expand my artwork outside of just Austin, TX and so far this year I’ve had a solo show in Smithville, painted a mural in San Antonio, and now I have these three originals living in Denver. Art has always been my escape but painting these while visiting New Mexico I found it brought me closer to some of my family. Having my nieces hanging out with me while I was painting or my dad coming out and trying to figure out what my life consists of and opening up more was a blessing. Just trying to keep my head focused while juggling life.. .
“Where do we go from here”

Here is the top two panels of a vertical triptych that I just started. The content is quite fluid right now. I've been listening to documentaries on Zohar, Mystic Christianity, and Norse beliefs. So I'm sure these will get intertwined in this piece. There's already in Norse rune.
