Día de los Muertos

In honor of the meaningful and wonder-filled Mexican tradition of the Day of the Dead. I've always been enchanted by the intricate sugar skull decorations and couldn't wait for an opportunity to present it self that required getting made up like one. This self portrait series is dedicated to my mother Nancy who I lost 15 years ago. She was a creative spirit with a zest for life.
