Lady In Red

There's something very interesting to me about Día de los Muertos. The way Mexican culture makes it not a day of sadness but a day of celebration, bringing the living, the dead and all associated icons together in a joyful holiday. My goal with this painting was to capture that combination and document our experience at last year's Dallas Dia De Los Muertos. I enjoyed painting all of these diverse elements, and at the center, a woman with ghostly makeup, yet a playful expression.
