Day of the Dead

A piece completed recently.

Hell or high water

'Hell or high water' 11" x 14" acrylic (left and right sides of the piece shown also)

From the photo shoot of my friend  Julie for this painting and her dog Pokey
I created this piece for the Hive's 'Hell vs the Monster Mash' show. My friend Julie was gracious enough to be my model for the piece as I was thinking of a Vampira-esc woman as the main character. Since I prefer beaches in cool weather being at the beach in the hot sun can sometimes feel like hell if the umbrella got left behind and I am sunburning.
I couldn't resist Pokey being shaded by a cool bone umbrella hat and the Monster mash going on in the background. Happy Halloween!
