The group of recycled or derived paintings is the result from diverse pre-existing models or sources of inspiration. She does what she wants; she chooses the model freely from her visual surroundings. She uses the colors that attract her. The visual reference of the model contributes to encourage enthusiasm for the teaching-learning process.
The degree of abstraction of the resulting image regarding to the model depends on the technique and the degree of detail applied. The fantastic characters, unreal, very adorned, are added to the iconography that has her personal stamp. They express her inner world: the relationship between her fantasy and her visual surroundings, shown in the details.
Verito’s development, from being deeply mentally challenged in her first years, to the slight mental challenge that she has nowadays, goes parallel to her painting. It has been enriched by the information of the context that surrounds her. Nevertheless, she maintains intact her spontaneity and naivety.
“...Thousand Blessings! Hi Verito, let God continue blessing your beautiful hands and the gift that you have. You are very special. I would love to have your paintings in my house. I can spend the hole day telling you the ones I like the most. Thousand blessings for you and a big kiss from Venezuela...”
