Ofrenda 2

"Ofrenda 2" 20"x14" Watercolor

These objects were part of our Dia de los Muertos celebration. The pot is an old precolumbian three footed bowl and I've been dying to paint it. I'm going to use it in some more paintings later.
The flowers are from our garden, I can't say that I really love to garden but I have do a green thumb. Maybe it's just that I hate to weed but I love making things grow.

Dia de los Muertos Challenge

They say that Halloween is a night of mischief and mayhem. . . that certainly held true in both Chris' and my house to say the least! Now on to Dia de los Muertos! A night of remembering the ancestors and honoring those that have passed on this year. This one was a challenge that I've been wanting to do for a long time and was a perfect distraction from the Halloween chaos surrounding me! It's a miracle that it was finished in time! Chris Beck really out did herself this time and I'm so in awe of her painting!
