Happy New Year everyone...

My first post of 2011 is dedicated to the memory
of my Abuelita who passed away just before Christmas
a little over two weeks ago.

She meant a lot to me and our entire family. She was
a true matriarch in every sense of the word.

At the age of 93 she had lived a long and prosperous life.

She was full of energy and her spirit will live on forever.

Here is a portrait I painted of her after she passed and was displayed next to her casket.

This is the way I wanted everyone to remember her.


Maria Angelita Arenas Cano
Aug.15, 1917 - Dec.22, 2010

Abuelita, te quiero mucho.
Que en paz descanse.
