Mr. Q “EL Maestro” Albert Quintana unveils a hidden history of San Luis Valley with his depiction of his latest work, The Crochet Lady.

Growing up in a lumber camp was beyond the Crochet Lady’s wishes. She called her life boring. She could only hope and pray that her knight in shining armor would come to the rescue. She only had one promise, and that was to wait for that special person in her life.

She told the story in the last years of her life.

In her last days, she had gone deaf. She asked me to write her story. So through the use of a whiteboard, a dry-erase pen, and many hours of interview, I wrote her story. Because of this promise, I present the story of the Crochet Lady, my inspiration.
