Masquerade de los Muetros

Halloween night has ended with today's dawn, but every year November 1st allows one more day of festivities as the Day of the Dead. For the past six years I have done a Dia de los Muertos themed artwork which I've shared on November 1st. This will be the first year I'm posting on Canvas first!

This piece is done in watercolor and graphite on watercolor paper, with highlights of pearl acrylic.

I visited Europe for the first time in my life this past month. I wanted to make use of the inspiration of European palace visits imagining exquisite masquerade balls while still keeping hints of Mexico in the image.

With ghosts and pumpkins over, today is a nice chance to remember the positive and happy memories of those who we have lost, but who's memory we want to keep alive.
