"What an enormous magnifier is tradition!
How a thing grows in the human memory
and in the human imagination, when love,
worship, and all that lies in the human heart,
is there to encourage it."
~ Thomas Carlyle
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Day Of The Dead~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Alcohol Inks and Watercolor on Yupo paper
I am a big Halloween fan. In fact, it's our favorite holiday around here. I start decorating in July and keep adding to it throughout the fall. Most of the decorations are left up until Thanksgiving. Day of the Dead is just an extension of Halloween for me, since I don't actually practice it. I do really like what it stands for though and think that the D.O.D. traditions, the visuals and the decorations are divine!
