Dia de los Muertos - Lakewood style

This was my favorite, one, ladders, branches, birds, nests and these beautiful egg shells (with resin) and flower petals. I am not sure what it had to do with Day O'Dead, but I loved it.These were in a second gallery, in a juried show, they were the runners up and if the art in the main gallery for any reason could not fulfill it's duties, it would get to move over?

Love the hands!
Yaketty, yak, don't talk back, oh wait are they singing to each other?
Could ya dance all night in these?
This was more iridescent in real life I didn't notice the "haints" until I moved and the light hit them.
I like the reflection
These 2 are from the featured artist.

Stephanie posted about an exhibit in Lakewood Co and I knew I was going to be in Lakewood and so pursued my family to take me to the exhibit. It was so worth all the cajoling and begging.. no really, they were glad to go with me, right Steven? Any way here are some additional images from those in Steph' post. I am sorry I didn't get the artists' names or titles. They were all wonderful.

Oh I wish I could have gone with you! Those shoes are fun, aren't they? I would definitely wear them this time of year. And the black and white print (I think it's printmaking...) is beautiful. And that landscape painting with the spirits calling to one another is so lovely. Thank you for showing this.
