She’s a doodle that wouldn’t leave my mind.
Really, I like the idea of a rejected Snow White. Rosa Guadalupe is based a lot on my views of myself as a child: I wanted to be white, like my older sister, and like Cinderella.
I used to pray for it.
Until my mother sat me down and told me about the virgin Mary and how she was brown. God chose her to have his son, and she was as dark as me.
I didn’t believe it, of course, because her paintings were all of white women, but I chose to believe and it did me well.
If I continue this as a thing, I wanna give Rosa a best friend named Shirai Yukimi or Yukiko
