If you been following my blog you know that a month ago I returned from Oaxaca. I went down there to take a class with Michael deMeng. The class was of the mixed media/assemblage variety and it focused on diablos and santos (devils and saints). I had a few ideas about what I was going to do down there but foremost was to celebrate the death of a relationship I no longer wanted hanging around in my psyche. What better place to go than Oaxaca for 'dios de los muertos'.
I packed a rusty old vintage singer oil can into my bags along with several of the paints Michael recommended. I also packed a couple of gears and an old round tin that used to hold saddle soap. Below you will find an image of La Madre in her first incarnation.
I'd say she is done. Tell me what you think...
Wish You Were Here
