CONGRATS ON THE SALE! that is so cool!

I love this beautiful work, and you lovely story makes it so special! Congratulations on your sale! :D

This piece almost brought tears to my eyes Victoria. They are still sitting on the sill of my eyes. What a wonderful heritage to honor you have. And what a beautiful tribute to your families heritage. You inspire me to paint some of the memories in my own family. I will try. Love and Peace, in Christ, Windy Mountain

Paint your memories Windy. Once we're gone our stories are gone! Thank you for your very kind words. Vaya con Dios!

A beautifully crisp, clean painting. I love the color pallette. v/f

Beautiful! v/p

Thank you for all your kind words. This piece sold in 2010. It went to really lovely people but have to admit it was hard to let it go. There is so much of my history and heart in it!

I ran across your painting while listening to a recording about a birthing of a new humanity with Barbara Marx Hubbard and thinking about a painting I saw years ago at a fellow midwife's home. I am now an artist and I was a midwife at home births. Your painting La Partera or the Midwife grabbed my attention and touched my heart. Just Beautiful.

Congrats on the sale and I have to say this is a wonderfully intriguing and beautiful work of art! :)

This piece is very charming. I love the story you tell about it in your biography. Your work is Beautiful. I love all of it!!!!!

Artist's Description

My piece titled, La Partera or The Midwife, came from my own family history. Growing up I had heard stories about my great grandmother Carmelita Anaya, or as she was lovingly called Mieta. She was a midwife and curandera in Galisteo, New Mexico. She was born in 1884 and raised 10 children of her own and delivered most of the babies in Galisteo at that time. When her daughter, Reynalda (my grandmother), would go into labor in Santa Fe, she would come from Galisteo to deliver her babies. In my piece, La Partera I show two portraits hanging on the wall. The one on the left is the wedding picture of my grandparents. The other is the daguerreotype of Mieta and my great grandfather Serapio Anaya when they were young. I saw this painting hanging in my grandmother's bedroom my whole life. To the right stands Mieta holding her medicine bag ready to leave the new mother and father. I have a mortar and pestle on the night table to symbolize the herbs Mieta used to heal people. She has us...

About Victoria De Almeida

Victoria De Almeida

Through my work I always hope to tell a story about my personal experiences as a Hispanic woman. I was born and raised in the beautiful state of New Mexico and my family has been in northern New Mexico for over 10 generations. My work comes from my memories of growing up in a large extended family and my favorite subjects to paint are the people and traditions of northern New Mexico. Both my father and grandfather are artists, so I grew up surrounded by work. I have always loved art and have wanted to become an artist for as long as I can remember. My primary medium is acrylic on canvas. I have also enjoyed using acrylic on wood as well. As a self-taught artist, I really fight “looking at” something when I’m painting or sketching. I...
