The Art: This hand-lettered watercolor series represents my physical and proverbial journey as a mixed Latin woman. People said "Don't go to Colombia. It's so dangerous; especially for women." While this scared me, I refused to let my fear of the unknown stop me from exploring this beautiful country. "Vamos a Colombia" became my mantra and a year and a half later I went to Colombia for the first time - and returned safe from harm. Materials: hand lettering & watercolor on paper. 8"x 8", ready-to-hang, frame included
