This is a painting by Paola Flores a member of the community in Piedecuesta (San Juan). She painted this woman last year for the International Day of the Woman, with the theme across Colombia being a tree. A few weeks after she painted and donated it she died in a motorcycle accident. The church had the plaque made to honor and remember her.
