People With No Names - The Undocumented #77

Here is another 8" x 12" oil on masonite, Desde Abajo II. Notice that we cannot see the woman's face but she has been cleaning and loving the family for whom she works, for sixteen years. Every week, she thanks them at the end of her workday by saying, "Gracias por el trabajo.."(thank you for the work) and her employer has learned to say, "No, gracias a ti"(no thank you). She is thankful to be given work despite her undocumented status. Her intrinsic value as a human being is in no way linked to her undocumented or documented status.
