This painting is a representation of a very special day in my life. I was 6 years old and we were in Mérida, a very cold city in Venezuela. We were on vacation driving when we saw a beautiful river but with a lot of current. I told my dad that I wanted to get in the water. I remember that it was freezing but the emotion was bigger and I got in carefully. The rivers fascinate me. My dad held my hand from the shore, but suddenly I let go... and I went with the flow while he ran with his panic face... I was so happy, I had no idea of ​​the danger that was happening. I got stuck on something and he was able to catch me and everything flowed perfectly. Today I remember his face of panic and my adrenaline of happiness. The best thing about this situation was seeing -when I became an adult-, the two emotional points of view from the perspective of a child compared to an adult. Sometimes I would like to be a girl again and feel that infinite flow of life without the stress we have about things.
