I have been working all week on this painting all week. Even though I don't have a drop of Mexican blood in me I am very intrigued by Mexican art and the Day of the Dead celebration which is around the corner! This is my interpretation of the celebration. It is a BIG 16"X20"X.75" gallery wrapped stretch canvas. It has lots of crackle and black antiquing for a very primitive look. I used two coats of a thick textured gloss to protect and bring out the colors. It almost has the look and feel of old leather. I tried to get close ups to show this. This painting will be listed tonight at a starting price of ONE PENNY!! Check it out by clicking the link to Find Folk Art at the top of this page! Then click on my name (Cristine Green) to the right.
I was busily cleaning the house today (my day off) and when I got the mail I had a very happy surprise! The prize I had won in the Give-Away from Artistic Halloween Queens came in the mail today! This lovely painted plaque was created by Linda White. Isn't it wonderful! Thank you Linda, I love it!
