Playa de los Muertos #3 12"x12"


Playa de los Muertos #3   12x12   Paper, Acrylic & Graphite (Framed in Birch Board Floater)

When we passed through the cemetery to get to the beach, I realized that this was a celebration of the dead.  This was not a sad or scary place.  There were basic head stones, small temples and mini mausoleums reminiscent of New Orleans cemeteries with one big difference...there was color.  Faux flowers and bright flags decorated memorials to family and friends.  Some of the tombs themselves were painted colors that reflected the the ocean and the sky at sunset.  It was beautiful.
