Translation

It is the wedding of a cousin. The stepmom is waiting to put the veil on the bride, the dad is waiting in the door, and the grandma is dressed and ready to go. And suddenly they all get very silent so the mom of the bride says that the time to give the blessing to the daughter has come. She calls the daughter to kneel on the cushion.

The daughter is about to leave her parents house. It is the time where the mother has to bless her child, give her tips, and prepare her for other stages in her life. It is a special moment.

Background

This was a painting created by Carmen Lomas Garza. She was born in 1948. She graduated at Texas Arts & Industry University, Juarez-Lincoln/Antioch Graduate School, and San Francisco State University where she earned her M.A. in 1981. She decided to become an artist at age 13. The Chicano Movement of the late 1960s encouraged her to pursue her dream of being an artist. Her main goal is to bring awareness and honor to Mexican traditions.
