One of the last public projects Catalina "just got to paint" was a five-by-five-foot section of a Mission mural. Given the loose theme of "the artist's burden," she created a haunting scene starring a rainbow-haired Native American woman hunching over, knees buckling and arms spread wide like Jesus bearing the cross.

One of her hands holds a colorful painter's palette, while the other steadies the load on her back consisting of an evil, dead tree and Cyclops cloaked in black. The Cyclops is gesturing with both hands -- one granting the Artist permission to move forward, the other ordering her to her knees.
