"Dia de los Muertos" Portrait Painting

Happy Halloween everybody!

For #throwbackThursday, here’s one of my favorites from 2018, painted from a great photo shot by Kimberly at Saunders Fine Arts during a Dia de los Muertos parade in San Antonio, Texas

I loved the juxtaposition between the subject’s joyous expression and her macabre makeup.
