Happy Day of the Dead

In honor of this special holiday, Dia de los Muertos,  which is celebrated today and tomorrow, I have been working on my real alter honoring my loved ones. My alter is being decorated with sugar skulls, candles, flowers, my saints, crosses, photos and other little trinkets that represent my loved ones that have passed on.

This week I have been busy working on other Day of the Dead inspired.

Here is a sneak peak on the new ornaments I am working on for Christmas! I will be listing them in the shop in the next few days!! I am so excited about these!!
 
I also finished my 2012 Art Calendar this week and listed it in the shop.


And inspired by today I also made a new illustration of an alter and a few other Frida and Dia de los Muertos inspired illustrations.






Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Kim, very nice. I love your illustration of your shrine. It's really great! I love this painting because it really tells it all. The pictures, the candles, the papel picado, the flowers. Excellent. If you get a chance try to link it at the following link. Stephanie and Rebecca are hosting Dia De Bloglandia, (dia de los muertos) it will give you a chance to go visit all the other participants. Thanks for sharing Kim. Have a wonderful week.
