October Art Event and Day of the Dead Art!

I am going to be participating in Altares Del Mundo art exhibition which is loosely based on the "Day of the Dead" celebration. Artists come together to create art installations reflecting traditional and non-traditional interpretations of this celebration of remembrance. Altars reflect a variety of artistic and personal expression and in the past have included such subjects as family, friends, celebrities, social trends, environmental issues, political statements, tragedy, misfortune and war. It was a great show last year and I am glad to be a part of it this year! For more information visit the Altares Del Mundo website.

On the subject, I have completed 3 of the small altars/niches for the Day of the Dead. I am pleased with how these are coming out! I will be posting to my Etsy shop but will also probably offer them for sale at the Altares Del Mundo show, if they don't all sell! Here is a photo of the first 3. The larger 2, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and the Sugar Skull are 4 inches by 3 inches. The smaller Lilly is approximately 1 inch by 2 inches. Wooden boxes, polymer clay flowers and figures, rhinestones, and acrylic paint!

On a more personal note, I had a nice weekend with my daughter Lindsey! We went to see the new Jennifer Aniston movie The Switch. Very cute, absolutely a chick flick! And yesterday we went to a Wizard of Oz sing along! What a hoot that was! The Wizard of Oz is my favorite movie from my childhood and to see it on a big screen in a room full of people singing along? Well… we had a great time!! That's it for today, be well. Tj.

Love this fabulous little pieces and I'm glad to see you are creating new pieces that isn't rehashing last year's works, TJ. I know how much fun you had with that! Love the blues here and the mixed media. Wizard of Oz has always been my favorite movie. I look forward to seeing the Jennifer Aniston movie. I've always loved her acting.
