books0977: The Good Book. Gladys Roldan-de-Moras (Mexico, 1965-). Oil. Always proud of her Colombian and Mexican roots, Gladys Roldan-de-Moras’ passion for art is reflected in her colorful work. Each one of her paintings captures the essence of the moment; often there is a hidden message the artist wants to convey.
