Crazy Consuela

No. 17 She Speaks For Herself
 I'm still working on the final portraits (gallery showing in February) and on the Day of the Dead gallery showing on October 22nd. My daughter needed an image for her business cards and this one seemed perfect for Crazy Consuela.
5X5 gallery canvas
I'm lovin this little darlin too. It's been so fun and creative to add some sass and beauty and make these harsh and macabre skulls fun.
In New Mexico, Day of the Dead is a great celebration and remembrance of dead loved ones. They remember the favorite foods, favorite jokes and favorite things of the loved one that's passed over. I think it's a good thing to visit graveyards and think about the dead.
I for one, am not afraid of being dead - it will be my ultimate travel destination.

You can't really tell, but this has tiny little seed beads added for drama.

This are so unique, hard to imagine that you can make skeletons look so full of life! Appreciate the education on Day of The Dead, it's not something we specifically do in my neck of the woods.
Can't believe the headway you've made in such a short time, creating all your ladies, getting not one but two showings, and those prints are just wonderful.
