Artist's statement:

"My oil painting portrays a young woman made up to celebrate the Day of the Dead, the ancient Mexican holiday that honors deceased ancestors.

The observance is today widely celebrated from Mexico to the Southwest of the U.S. My painting was inspired by one of the many Dia de los Muertos festivals that occur in my home city of Los Angeles."
