Here are a few things that will be auctioned off at the El Paso Community College fundraiser for their art department this Saturday. The shrines are my babies. I made one years ago after I had a dream of the idea. She's still around and sitting in my hallway alter. These are smaller than my original, but I hope they fetch a good price . If anyone is interested in ordering one, just let me know.

I was asked if I could make something small and affordable for the students to purchase, so I took out of retirement my little Muerto Guys. I made these right after I had graduated from college in '05. I was attempting to find my voice and just do something really fun just because. For those of you who have a degree in art, or anything else for that matter, you know how intense the work and hours can be. I know I drank many pots of coffee and smoked may packages of cigarettes in those days. Still love my coffee, but gave up the smokes a year ago.

Well, it's almost time for "Bones" and my work for today is finished, so off I go. Peace out.

ooh, one more thing: an iconic figure i deal with again and again is the slavic "rusalka". a female water spirit who blows fair and fowl and often lures men to a watery grave. she's not mean exactly, just misunderstood. i think la llorona and rusalka would be great pals...ladies who lunch???
