Universal Theme - Change
Change can mean so many different things. The way I wanted to use it to describe this book was - changing different aspects of your life like location, attitude, and friends can change you. For example, when Maya moved from the small, poor town in Arkansas to a rich city in California. She had some changes she needed to adjust to. As she adjusted, she changed. She was no longer the weak girl from that small town, she was a confident individual. That change in location changed her life for the better. In this painting, it shoes a woman that is so nasty that she is "turning into a rat". I assume that the events that happen to her and how she acts affected this change.
