first layer on portraits... possible direction topic: Race. As a Hispanic American skin color, in the US and Latin American countries, separates social status. Looking at the generation of my child and what the future may be for him as a first generation US born Latino, the question provoked, Will his lightness as a Hispanic affect his future or not? Other children in my community whom are darker, Will their skin color affect how they are portrayed by society?
