day of the dead - annual painting
I paint a day of the dead painting every year. I choose a famous person that has passed. I follow a recipe of setting stage with Marigolds and candles, and the person's favorite food in their lifetime. I wait for them to arrive. This year, more famous to me than you, I invited my 26 year marriage. complete with pets we owned and carrots and grapes (I famously suffered my children those on long car rides). ocean for me. Those Island. mountains for him. Colorado. voila! our family vision. gone but never forgotten. painting is 10 x 10 inches on wood homemade cradled panel. acrylic paints. ready to hang.
