The Arte de los Muertos show

Hello everyone! I am finally back to show you a few pictures from the Arte de los Muertos show which I participated in at Borealis Arts here in Tucson. Here is a picture of my little paintings up at the show. They looked so small in there! :) I am also very thrilled to say that I just found out today that all four paintings sold to one collector!! They will have some very dignified new friends as I understand that this person also owns works by Picasso and Rembrandt. So many many thanks to them, it is quite a thrill! :)

At the show there was also a little shrine where you could leave photos and other mementos of passed loved ones.

Here are a couple of paintings by the very talented main artist of the show, Carolyn Anne Anderson. I got to talk to her a little bit and she was very nice!

This is a cool piece made by the owner of Borealis Arts, Nathan Saxton, which he made using their mat cutter and spray paint:

I apologize for not having more pictures of the overall show: There was so much socializing to do that I got distracted I guess! It was a lot of fun and such an exciting experience for me :) Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and good luck wishes!

I also wanted to show you the only painting I managed to get done last week, "Snow White At the Window." For some reason out of all of the fairytales I seem to love painting Snow White the best :) She has actually been in my shop for a few days and is available here.

And on a final note here is a little sneak peek of what is on my work desk (aka coffee table) right now:

I am still trying to figure out the background for this one but will hopefully have it done soon.

I hope everyone is having a great week, see you soon!


  1. I am becoming such a fan of your art! I really love the Snow White one you have posted...I wish you had postcards for sale in your shop I want one so bad!!!! :D

  2. OMG! Congratulations to you!!!! I'm so thrilled that you sold all the paintings from the show. How awesome that they'll be gracing a wall next to Picasso and Rembrandt. :) Your new works are really lovely. I especially love your faerie and can't wait to see her finished. Theresa

  3. How exciting Lauren!!! Congrats and applause :)

    I've missed you...glad to see what you've been up to....and that it has all been fantastic! ...and that little fairy is beguiling, indeed!

  4. Fantastic - so exciting to be in a show! I love the girl at the top of your display! I love this theme - Los Dias De Los Muertos is fascinating to me. This weekend a local cemetery has an all souls night on Halloween - music, artists, shrines, art all in the cemetery! They has a sugar skulls workshop i attended with my son this week - so much fun! But back to you - congratulations!

  5. Wow that is so great that all four sold! Although to be honest I am a little sad because I LOVE the girl with top hat and most certainly would have bought her given the chance! Any chance you might make more of those lovely skeleton girls or have prints of them in your shop? Congrats again!!

  6. Congratulations for your success in the show!!
    Your snow white is so delicate and has a sweet sadness in her eyes, she is just beautifull.

  7. Lauren,
