This piece was originally based on the La Llorona legend. There are many versions of the story, but the most basic one involves a woman bathed in a watery blue light sobbing at the loss of her children. And if you hear her crying or are a little child who looks like her lost children she could come after you, (the legend is much more complex than what I am explaining it here). In the area I grew up the legend was always whispered about in Spring and Summer. The closest I came to her was there was a small shack near one of my friends house. I think it was an equipment shed for a near by farm out in a field. One night while talking about the legend we just happened to be looking in the direction of the shack where we saw a mysterious blue light in the middle of the night. A couple of weeks later a story about that shack appeared in the paper with the La Llorona legend attached to it. But once I delved into making this piece the idea of her morphed into a time when she was happier, before her tragedy happened. Maybe around the time of her wedding, hence the veil, and lovely purple flowers, yet there is the foreshadowing blue hue creeping out from the corners and over her face like an ever present looming sadness. I have to say I had so much fun making this piece. It really consumed me for a very long time.
