Gracias, Por La Invitacion

This is my submission for the Dia de los Muertos show. When doing research for this piece I loved that everything that is done on this holiday(altars, shrines, flowers, candles, face painting, story-telling, etc.) is meant to encourage a visit from the deceased. I thought to myself what if the dead could usher themselves back into the realm of the living by creating their own encouragement to return. So here's my interpretation of that idea in acrylic and oil on rives BFK.
I Hope everyone enjoys and I can't wait to see the show on Friday, all the work I've seen already looks amazing. Who's stoked? I am! :)

P.S- Process shots will be on my blog shortly

I'm stoked on this piece. My Mills favorite. Love that face and the planes on that nose. Coughing up flower pedals, just the deadness of this piece is amazing.
