Hello everyone! This is my new piece, another Day of the Dead inspired painting. I have been given the wonderful opportunity of creating a couple little paintings for a show at Borealis Arts. This is a gallery here in Tucson which is owned by my boyfriend's brother Nathan and his wife Brandi.
They invited me to bring in "Spooky Little Friend," but I was fortunate enough to have that one sell right away in my shop. So of course I jumped at the opportunity to create a couple more paintings just for the show! As part of the show they will be building a little shrine honoring loved ones who have passed on, and my pieces will go on or near that shrine as I understand it. I am very excited to have my paintings in a gallery for the first time! :) The show is called "Arte de los Muertos." It opens October 15 and goes until November 17.
I plan on doing two more paintings. I don't have a name for this one yet, I may have to enlist the help of some of my Spanish-speaking friends. And of course any suggestions, in English or Spanish, are welcome! :) Any paintings that don't sell in the show will go into my etsy shop when it is over.
Here is another little painting which I have had in the shop for a couple of days already, called "The Candy Corn Bandit"! She is painted on a little 5"x5" stretched canvas and is available here.
