Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)

Today is El Dia de los Muertos in Mexico. I thought I would ad a few images of this celebration of death, for those of you who have never been to Mexico. We went down to one of the local cemeteries to visit some friends. A friend of mine really did a nice job of decorating the grave of his brother.

This is a close up of some of the offerings at the same grave.

This is an altar to Cri CRi. He was the most famous singer/ author of children's music in Mexico.

One last photo of an older cemetery in town. Many of the graves here are hundred's of years old.

When are your workshops in SMA? Thanks for the blog. I will keep looking for new paintings and your thoughts, especially about hard and soft edges. Carolyn Cobb

Hello Carolyn, Thanks for visiting. I don't have any workshops planned right now, but I usually do them in Feb. and Mar. I will let you know when I set dates. I know that people need to make travel plans to be able to attend.
