Frida and her skellie cats enjoyed their time at the Day of the Dead festival! The skellie cats even got some sugar skull balloons!

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!

Day of the Dead

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:

Halloween Costumes

Do you celebrate Halloween? If so, what will you be this year? I have no idea what, if anything, I will be this year. I might just redo the Dia de los Muertos nun, but that wouldn’t be exciting. I still have a little time to think about it!
