Altar Skull

Emily Austin, "Auntie Em" from Tennessee said: “My first submission is a painting I was asked to do for a celebration of Dia de los Muertos at Christ Church Episcopal in Nashville, TN in 2006. During the First Friday Service the congregation had a special place to put lighted candles in memory of loved ones. The skulls in the painting glowed in the candlelight.”

C. Stipe says:

I am really impressed by this work. The interconnection of the white shapes and the visually stimulating layering effect make this piece look as if it has a joyous movement. I can visualize seeing this bathed in the flickering candle light and imagine the skulls appearing to dance. Thank you for submitting this work and allowing us to share it.

It's like as if Picasso painted skulls.

Thank you so much for posting my painting here. I'm a regular follower and finally got up the nerve to submit something.

Thanks also for the kind comments. Can always use the encouragement.
