Dia de los Muertos



"Vigilence" by Marcia Molnar



"Day of the (Dead) Drunk" 6"x6" oil by Jelaine Faunce






"Skullz" 13"x17" watercolor by Pablo



My favorite time of year also includes one of my favorite holidays. . . Dia de los Muertos. I'm so honored to have the UBER talented Marcia Molnar and UBER talented Jelaine Faunce (I think uber is French for mega creative and fabulous) join me in the celebration!



I feel like Marcia has exemplified the spirituality and heart of the celebration and Jelaine the humor and irony, I've sprinkled mine with symbolizm and whimsy. Please make sure to visit Marcia and Jelaine's blogs and enjoy their mega talent!
