My days are filled with painting Day of the Dead family portraits to prepare for an upcoming Day of the Dead festival in October.   

I thought I’d share with you the progress from some of the paintings.

Here’s the first step – COVER with lots of acrylic paint, metallic, and INK!   I love using ink to drip onto the canvas.

Then I use gesso to get the basic  shapes of the family.


Then I add Aleena’s glue to create raised areas on the canvas.   I will paint over this later.  FullSizeRender 2

After several layers of paint and some fun creating I end up with this!   


Thanks for reading my newsletters and I hope this was helpful!   I’m also taking a few more orders if you want me to paint your family “Day of the Dead” Style please reply to this email!   

Extremely Grateful!
