Cats & kids on Yellow is a portrait that celebrates Latinx life in the US. Painted during COVID, this colorful bright painting showcases life in a domestic interior scene. There is a dynamic of kids surrounding the patterned tablecloth that serves as a unifying rectangle that brings together the composition and establishes color relationships throughout the painting. The kids’ artworks in the back are a testimony of their life indoors and create a conversation with the artist’s view of the "real" cat. Artists choose to show the cat's reaction to the kid facing back, instead of the other way around to provide emotion with body language. The presence of the adult figure brings care and protection even when it’s not completed. The bright colors and flat spaces distort the picture's reality to take the viewer to a dreamlike state that is very necessary at this moment in time.
