Haiti’s Day of the Dead combines Christianity with Voodoo Practices to pray for the spirits of the dead. A black cross is sometimes hung up to symbolize the spirit of death, “Baron Samedi”. Voodoo is still practiced today with hundreds who follow this tradition. many people ask for their wishes to be granted on this day and pray for a better life, hoping the spirits of their loved ones will lend them a hand in accomplishing their goals.

As an artist, I find the Day of the dead a very interesting cultural gathering of important significance that connects life and death and because this tradition is celebrated throughout the world in so many different cultures, the inspiration to create is an endless endeavor and one I find to be fantastical!

This artwork was created on a small canvas measuring 8″ × 10″ and is painted in Acrylics on Gallery Wrapped Canvas and Decorated with Silver Glitter.

Mexico is a hot spot for UFO activity. In this artwork the reputation of alien visitation is fantasized and showcased in a comical way. A dark Mexican Sky with a flying saucer that is abducting cows and an extra terrestrial musician is singing the song of the dead. Decorated in the spirit of “Dia De Los Muertos” or Day of the Dead, this painting celebrates the Mexican Holiday. The Alien Cantina on the left is owned by a skeleton and his cat. The flying skeleton is an undead sugar skull traveling towards the spaceship watching over the graveyard below.

I had a great time with this theme, especially the cows being abducted. Having an Alien painted like a sugar skull with a spider web on his head is something you never see that often. This artwork encompasses everything I enjoy. Hope you enjoy it too and thanks for supporting my work! Have a Great Mother’s Day Weekend ~Cheers
