Thank you for viewing my original art. Xueling Zou -
Guatemalan usually dress up traditionally for an event. Lot's of families could have more than 10 children. Some villagers still believe that taking their photos are bad luck and can steal their soul. Of course for me taking pictures of people is the most important part of my cultural experience, so I can remember and study the feelings and expressions from the different people. Most of them would turn their heads away when photographed. This young lady was so curious about me as I focused on her, while she was playing with her ring unconsciously. Her traditional clothe was made from a piece of beautiful hand woven textile with many kids both boys and girls embroidered on. I imagined that she might be newlywed, just pregnant. I painted her after returned home.
