The "America the beautiful" serial was created inspired in the american flag.

In September 11th, 2001 there was a tragedy in the United States of America. Nearly 5000 (or more)  people lost their lives there. I think everybody in the world was affected by this fact in a way or another.

Women cried, (some men also did it), firemen rescued bodies,  and CNN showed it on TV.

I am a painter, not a woman nor a CNN reporter. Painting is the way I express my feelings, and so, thatís what I did: I painted. I painted these serial using the colors of the nationalís flag.

I painted them as a personal tribute to America. ďBeautifulĒ is the world that came to my mind, because thatís the way I want to think about America: America the beautiful.
