An animated gif featuring a photo by Tracey Rose and a painting by Aliza Nisenbaum. The first image is of a woman is standing in the middle of a deserted dirt road covered in pink body paint and wearing black makeup around her eyes and mouth. She playing an electric guitar, topless. She is wearing a plastic tiara, a short blond wig, black gloves, a skinny green belt, leopard print underwear, and black fishnets. Her eyes are closed and her mouth is open, as though she is in the middle of singing. The second image is a vibrant and colorful painting by Aliza Nisenbaum featuring Veronica and her daughter Maritza sitting on a couch in their Queens living room. Around the couch is a stack of notebooks, a stool with a poinsettia plants, a portable speaker, a bicycle, and a sheet music holder. Veronica is wearing a yellow dress and turquoise cowboy boots. Maritza, who is resting under her mother's arm, is wearing a tank and cross-body purse with nature-inspired motifs, blue jeans, and gray socks.
