La Sobreviviente – from Oscar López Rivera

Puerto Rican independentista and long-held political prisoner Oscar López Rivera made this painting during the time people were sending positive healing energy Marilyn’s way … it was at the same time he learned that his sister was ill. He would run in the mornings and send his energy every half mile, to both. The painting is based on a photo of a woman who survived the same cancer Marilyn had… in the hopes that she, too, would be able to survive. It’s called La Sobreviviente, 29″ x 24″
