©Seth F. Weaver, Sr. 04/11/13. This artwork features the gorgeous actress Mapi Galan. This is dedicated to all the people who immigrate from their native countries and embrace new cultures and languages. The thrill of a new life and the fact that you have communication issues must be daunting, my respect for their courage and wanting a better life for their family is understandable.
My daughter-in-law is from Peru. She is multilingual in English and Spanish and can go from one language to the other at the snap of a finger. My language switch was broken a long time ago and she laugh at me when I make up Spanglish words like casa de peepee for el banyo. This work is dedicated to Mapi Galan, my model and Katia M. Weaver, my beautiful daughter-in-law. A Compullage™ creation.

    It must be a very daunting experence Seth, to leave one’s home Country, and go elswhere, when your not known, may encounter racial tensions, a new culture, and teach yourself English,

    I have a freind In france, who can speak any tongue, he encounters, How I admire folk like that,

    A great work to your Daughter -in-law,

    You are so right there Seth, I could never learn a new language and culture and I always thank God for letting me be born here in the USA where it’s all I ever known.
