Feliz Día de los Muertos / Happy Day of the Dead! Big Eye Eyed Sugar Skull Calavera Original Painting / Eternal Roots Exhibit at the Ontario Museum of Art

Feliz Día de los Muertos / Day of the Dead from this big eye sugar skull calavera and from me at!

"La Sonrisa" Original 8"x10" Painting, Open Edition 8"x10" Giclee Prints & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO Prints Here

This is "La Sonrisa," an original big eye fantasy painting of a sugar skull inspired calavera.  There is some texture in the background. DDLD / DOTD is a celebration, initially of Mexican origin, that remembers those who are gone from us that we still hold in our hearts.  She has big brown eyes and long brown hair streaked with purple.  The art has a lowbrow surreal feel...

Most of my art is also available on my website at; however, on the first Tuesday of the month, I like to put some art prints and LE ACEO prints on ebay at a lower promotional rate for the duration of the auctions... This month, my theme is mixed with fall, Día de los Muertos, and Halloween art; you may see them here.
