Just one more for today.

I am inspired by the Day of the Dead art from Mexico. I did this "altared" book last October and it continues to be a favorite. The book is a thrift store find, the crochet is also rescued from a local thrift store. The tiny birds are from a sand dollar that I found cracked so I opened it to let the little birdies out. I hand sculped and painted the sculls and offerings of food and flowers. The pictures are from a 1800's dictionary set and I liberated them so that they can me honored for all time.

  1. I love Day of the Dead art too. This altered book is beautiful! Love those little skulls!

    Thanks so much too for the lovely comment on my blog! So glad you came over, so I can see your work too. :) And it's good to meet another norcal person. I'm find that a lot of artists seem to be anywhere but northern cali. I'm in the Santa Cruz Mountains. :)


Thank you for leaving a comment! I am looking forward to reading what you have to say.
