Be what you may, but be passionate

Today I sat outside and asked myself: who are you? I responded: I am Ana Laura Juarez and I am a happy, intellectual, free, motivated, creative, passionate, humble, responsible, giving, loving, positive, respected, youthful, successful, secure, and outspoken woman.

"Tree of Life" is a block print on MDF board. I chose this archetype because I felt that everyone can connect to a living tree. A living tree plays a role on this earth as it gives and takes energy, affects others and is affected by others, while also revealing a great power and beauty.
