People With No Names - The Undocumented #95

This is an 8" x 12" oil on board painting of my puffy, warm, down parka.  It is super cold at night in the desert now.   When the sun goes down, it is freezing.  I am thankful for my parka.  But still, I wouldn't want to be walking across the desert at night in this jacket.  And from an immigrant's point of view, this jacket is just too bright.  When you are trying to hide, you don't dress in bright colors.   I am lucky, I don't have to hide.
