I think you are right...love the feeling of movement...it is like she is walking into the light...and with the additional symbolism with the cross behind her this piece makes a powerful statement.
I love the lightness and movement she managed to get into her quilts as well. She is a very, very talented quilter. Her design sense is right on. I love how she incorporated the milagros as well as the translations on the bottom. Extremely well done and I am sure she can go far if she continues. Her work so far is far more impressive than a Latina from the area who has gotten Kudos...keep at it!
Christina has used a delicate hand and tells me her story with great sensitivity. It's a story than can be interpreted by each viewer and still have a great deal of meaning.
Love comments! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me.
