This festive moment almost didn’t happen, when the Mariachi band was down one member. Thankfully the skellie cat stepped in with some maracas to accompany Frida’s dance!
Every now and then I get stuck on a theme and realize I’m having a lot of fun with it, so I stick with it! One of my most requested paintings is “Frida y Gatos” which has “Frida” standing between two skellie cats. I can partially thank/blame someone on Tumblr who took my original painting, slapped a Frida quote on it, removed any of my ID from the painting, and Tumblr’d it around, and around…and around. As the internet would have it, people went searching for who the original artist was and eventually found me! I happily repaint anything I’ve painted before, and change things slightly to the buyer’s wish, such as colors. So one such request started me on another Day of the Dead painting spree. Below is the result:
