I did this 11 x 14 mixed media on paper for a local shop’s Day of the Dead celebration. (Find out more about The Workroom’s event here.) This festive gal is a melding of ideas from a couple of other pieces I have done recently. Beads and feathers from one, face from another, with a sugar skull painted on for the occasion. I love the combinations of the dark Citra Solv background with the stark white of her face and the turquoise, gold, and red accents.
from my art journal:
If in Wichita for Final Friday this week, you can view this piece and my Frida canvas at The Workroom, 150 N. Cleveland, from 6 to 9pm. However, I will not be there as I will be attending the opening of The Arts Council Annual Juried Art Show at City Arts, 334 N. Mead Street. I can’t wait to see all the wonderful pieces there! Then I will stop by Tessera Fine Art Gallery to see my new pieces up on my wall! Hope to catch you local folks at one of those locations!
