This is a lithograph print and mixed media of a curvy female coyote, singing into a microphone. She is wearing a pink dress with red roses, a pink collar with matching red roses at her neck by her ear, and long pink gloves. This is Rose, This is Rose, Coyote's girlfriend and life-partner-in-crime. Coyote was Fonseca's alter ego and the oft-repeated iconic character of his career. Rose's three back-up singers are in silhouette, in the background, standing on a black and white checkered floor. The figures are all singing beneath a purple starry sky.
