Made on commission for a woman to send for a wedding present. She approved the color swatches I sent, and needs it before the end of the month. I am delighted with it – it is always such a pleasure to work with this particular image!
Instead of any useful information about how I am (better, thank you) or how the large pieces are going (better, thank you) I wanted to think about sugar skulls and the Day of the Dead. A quick googling of sugar skulls produces how to make them, why to make them, and then many many joyful pictures of decorated skulls. Like these, or these.
And then people get silly, and start producing images of the Star Wars characters as sugar skulls, or sugar skull dolls and key caps, or shoes (which I really want, for no obvious reason).
So even though I supposed to be working on landscapes, I am thinking hard about sugar skulls and Dia de los Muertos.
